Len and Heather Sparrow live in the world's most isolated city (Perth WA), in a beachside suburb, just 8 mins walk from the Indian Ocean. We have one son (Kit) who is a lovely young adult, working in theatre and film (creative, hard working, talented- very poor!). As a family we lived originally in UK (Len comes from LIncoln, a cathedral city in the middle of England, Heather from Hastings-On the south coast - almost France- I grew up seeing it from my bedroom window on a clear day And Kit was born in Nottingham where we lived for 20 years). We moved to Australia in 1990s, and all love life here on the wild west coast: no mighty rivers or mountains but wonderful weather, beautiful coastline and outstanding quality of life for ordinary people.
We both recently retired university academics (Education teachers/researchers), looking forward to life in the "third age". Apart from family, friends and work our main interests in life are travel, wine & food.
