So You Think You Know ……? David Schofield
I noticed David Schofield’s name was added to the list of SAM observers in April, so this month I decided to find out all about him. I knew as soon as he spoke that Dave, 57, is a Yorkshireman. I was waiting for him to tell me that the only good thing to come out of Lancashire is the road into Yorkshire, but as fellow Northerners now in exile we ignored the War of the Roses, although hostilities haven’t completely ceased up North yet. Originally from Pudsey near Leeds, Dave left school at 16 when Dad decided he should join the civil service. Then as soon as he began working life in Leeds, the family moved near to Crewe in Cheshire. Even in Leeds a school leavers wage wasn’t quite enough to support Dave, so he transferred to Cheshire where happily he met his wife Hilary before they migrated to Stoke on Trent. After a number of years in The Potteries, Dave took a job in Sudbury so they moved to Hadleigh in 1988 and have been in sunny Suffolk ever since. The SAM Observer August 2008
