Peter – Age 78

“I have been volunteering for 25 years now, and I enjoy mixing company with doing something useful. My two grandsons have also been involved in the group. It is good for the generations to work together. You get a lot more out of life if you put something back in.”

I’ve been volunteering 25 years. I enjoy mixing with company and doing something useful. I’ve got 2 grandsons and both have been involved with the group. I think grandparents should try and assist the parents in getting the kids involved in something useful.

Brighton is a very vibrant town with lots of things to do and you’re surrounded by lovely countryside. All the resources are here. I clear footpaths, I go rambling, I’m a rambler, I’m a local footpath secretary and I serve on the local access forum. I used to work in an office indoors and now all my interests are outdoors. You get a lot more out of life if you put something back in.
