My name is David Lincoln. I am slightly over 21…. Ok a young 68!
I have been married to Rosemarie (a nursery nurse) for 44 years...stiII no time off for good behaviour!
We have three children; Matthew (42) who lives with his Partner (Alison) and son (Nathaniel) in Mansfield.
Daniel (41), lives at home and is a bus driver with Stagecoach (Oxford)
My daughter: Laura-Jean, known to us as Madam, she is 31. Lives in Chinnor with her partner Darren, and four children Joshy, Oliver, Oscar, and Isla-Rose.
My wife and I are very proud of all our children and the way they have turned out.
We also have 2 unofficially unadopted daughters... Hayley and Shireen. Oh! And not forgetting Holly the cat who thinks she is a dog, likes to play fetch, especially with Worthers originals sweets, playing with the spirit of our previous cat meow (cos that's what she did) and sleeping. We know when meow is around as Holly's ears will go back, she will start staring at various places in the lounge and then all hell breaks loose.
I don't hold any major academical qualifications but some employment related ones, I am always willing to learn, we should never stop learning, everyday there is something new to learn, keeps me young as do the grandchildren and Holly.
My working life has been pretty varied from learning retail management at the Oxford & Swindon co-operative society (when there was one!) in the dry goods side (Furniture, footwear, white goods, audio visual etc.) to serving in the RAF where I first came into contact with and starting learning computing. Thoroughly enjoyed myself in the RAF, saw many different places and countries that I would never have got to see otherwise.
I have many years' experience in IT, Retail, Administrative and Customer Service industries.
I have also been a Parish Councillor (Risinghurst), a Parent Governor and a member of the PTA at my children’s schools. When we lived in Leeds I also served on the Local Tenants and residents association.
I am very proactive and flexible, always prepared to go the extra mile and willing to take on multiple tasks.
I have a professional but approachable outlook on life and stacks of enthusiasm!
In my spare time when I am not on the computer doing "admin" for a Facebook group or keeping up with the latest technical advances, I like to relax with a good book or watch a little television. I particularly enjoy Time Team, programs from the National Geographic, History and Animal Planet channels on sky. I also enjoy driving and visiting places of Historical interest. I am an avid Star Trek collector and of other collectables inc coins and other memorabilia.
So that’s me, not such an exciting life but a packed one!
