Over the years we all have stuff we like to do and I’ve always done stuff. Some people have green fingers, mine are doing stuff fingers.

I’ve always loved the idea of photos and photography but motorcycles have been a passion since late school days.

With my pages I hope to bring to you just some of what I get up to, but first a little history.

I come from many generations of construction workers, from master craftsmen, stone masons and carpenters to major construction firms. I left the family construction business in late 1989 when Hilary and I bought her father’s locksmith business, D C Reeve Locksmith. We have now sold the renamed Basingstoke Locksmiths Ltd which had been family run since 1961, we having owned it just short of thirty years.

We are now happily retired which gives me time to do our website and stuff…
