The late 1960’s and early 70’s were an exciting time to be at university, with many social and cultural changes starting around that time. The great thing about university was that it exposed me to all sorts of interests, and people, that I never knew about – it was an amazing opportunity.
My student union activities were also engrossing, and I remember attending the NUS National Conference at Liverpool with Jack Straw as President. I never expected that the work on initially renovating the New Theatre would be so long-lived, although of course further improvements were made, especially to the foyer area, later. In later life I was project manager for much larger £m projects, and more recently built my own house, maybe I should have read Architecture and not Agriculture!
