Goodbye from me - The End of an Era

A period of my life spanning over 35 years has finally come to an end. The picture above shows me leaving 7 Beaconsfield Square for the last time.

I first moved to number 7 with my parents when I was 12 (back in 1972). I left in 1979 to go to University in London but returned to Beaconsfield Square in 1986 and set up as a self employed business advisor working from the top floor of the house. No matter where in the UK a contract took me, including twelve years working with PERA in Melton Mowbray and contracts in Wales, The South West and of course London, I kept 7 Beaconsfield Square as my permanent registered business address. In addition I kept my old bedroom, also on the top floor, as a part time residential base. During several ups and downs the old place provided me with a safe haven on more than one occasion.

However, the “For Sale” Notice has gone up and so it’s goodbye from me to 7 Beaconsfield Square. There is no doubt I will miss the old place.
