I was born in Colchester in 1947 and have lived in Polstead for the past 40 years.
I had a heart attack just over a year ago and was expertly looked after by Basildon Hospital cardiac unit and subsequently by the cardiac rehabilitation unit at Sudbury.
I started with UPBEAT last September which provides me with an ideal mix of exercise, cinical monitoring and discussion.
I recently became a member of the Upbeat Executive Committee and consequently a trustee. My main interest is to preserve the mixture of exercise, clinical and friendship within Upbeat.
