"I am retired. But I keep very busy. Lots of volunteering. Working with young people. Young people are fine, if they have a challenge"

I had wandered into a store. It wasn't busy and I heard the sound of an acoustic guitar being gently played. I assumed it was radio, and did a double take when I spotted Fred sat behind the shop counter with his guitar. He laughed when I said I thought it was the radio and remarked "Nah, too many bum notes for that!"
Fred agreed to be photographed and in our conversations afterwards he seemed positive, interested and kind hearted

"I play in a jazz band. I play the bass. I also work at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. I'm one of the team of Mardlers there. We work with school groups and the like"
