It’s always a great pleasure when OWs return to Wells and last week saw a visit from Alistair Toop (OW 1970) and Graham Fudge (OW 1969) both of whom I remember well.
When in his twenties Alistair married and went to live in Australia and in 1978 he began a career in the grocery industry. He built wide industry experience with multinational companies and in 1994 founded Newbridge & Associates, an independently owned company in Western Australia providing brokerage services to stores across the state.
Alastair and his wife Susan are keen explorers of the natural heritage of his adopted country. He is also Ride Master for the Joondalup Branch of the Ulysses Club, a social club for motorcyclists over the age of 40 which provides ways in which older motorcyclists can get together for companionship and mutual support.
Now that Alistair has retired from his company we hope we shall see more of him at reunions in the UK – perhaps for the big one in 2020?
