March 2009 David Mears
David Mears writes: I worked for HMSO from 1970 until 1981. Firstly at Sovereign House, in CEPA, then in PP before going to Harrow Press in 1975, then Atlantic House before returning to Norwich and PP again. I left HMSO in 1981 to become a driving instructor, then attended UEA at the ripe old age of 47 to obtain an Hon(BA) and MA. Armed with this I became a probation officer (in Cumbria), taking early retirement in 2007 and odd bits of work as a social worker thereafter. I remain happily married in Cumbria at the present time, but expect to be living and working as a social worker in South Wales in the near future.
