Peter has lived most of his life in Kent. After studying Economics at the University of Kent at Canterbury, he started his career in financial services: mainly working in technical pensions for Scottish Equitable and Clerical Medical. While his four children were growing up, he became very involved with the local Scouts and although he "retired" from being a scout leader in 2017, he is still helping with summer canoeing and acting as quartermaster for the group. Peter was a school governor for 11 years and has worked extensively with the teaching profession giving advice on pensions and investment. Peter also runs a small table tennis club in Yalding and is a qualified instructor. Peter is currently Chair of the Kent Region for the Society of Will Writers.
Lucy graduated from the University of Brighton with a first class honours degree in International Business. Having helped her father with the Camrass Wills business over the years, she decided after graduating to put both her degree and her knowledge of the family business into practice and set up her own branch of Camrass Wills. In her spare time Lucy also helps out with Scouts and is a keen surfer. She has already surfed in France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and India as well as various locations in the UK.
In his spare time, Peter runs Yalding Table Tennis Club Yalding Scouts Canoe Club. He is a qualified instructor for both table tennis and canoeing.
