Let’s us focus on the duke of westminster

A BIT ABOUT GERALD GROSVENOR, 6TH DUKE OF WESTMINSTER

Written by Andy Shaw

duke-of-westminsterGerald Grosvenor was born on the 22nd of December 1951, in Omagh, Northern Ireland and when he died (according to the Sunday Times Rich List 2016) he was worth £9.35 billion – which raises the obvious question of whether he could have done more with his money to help the poorer members of society.

Let’s take a closer look at some of his life: Gerald Grosvenor was many things including businessman, British landowner, Territorial Army general and peer.

He left Harrow Public School with only two ‘o’ levels in English and History but this did not prevent him from becoming arguably, disgustingly rich.

INTERVIEW WITH SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WOMAN

louise.jpgINTERVIEW WITH LOCAL BUSINESSWOMAN LOUISE WOODIVES

Louise, can you say a bit about yourself? I’m forty-six. I’m married to Victor and have three children – Mathew twenty-two, Charlotte fifteen and Sebastian who is thirteen. I was born and bred in Halifax and have always lived in Halifax. I originally come from the Holmfield area of Halifax and now live in Skircoat Green.

How long have you had your café and how did you come to own it? I bought it on the 25th of this year and it came about because I was a regular customer when the then owners asked me if I was interested in buying the café. I went home and had a talk with my husband and we decided we would like to buy it – the rest is history!

Did you always want to have your own business? Yes, I’ve always wanted to work for myself but was not quite sure in what line. I have however, always been interested in catering and this opportunity just came out of the blue.

How did you know you would be able to make a success of this business when you had never run a café before? Well I’ve done various jobs in the past and thought sometimes you just have to take a risk and see if it works out. I like a challenge!

CHRISTIANITY FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

faithFAITH HAS EYES

Written by Rumbi Mapanga
By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible. (Hebrews 11:24-27 NKJV)

You might be surprised like I was when I first heard that faith has eyes. Yes I knew about faith but no one had ever explained to me that it had eyes.

A QUAKER TALKS ABOUT HIS LIFE FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

Robin, can you tell me a bit about yourself?  I was born in Uttoxeter, a small market town in Staffordshire. My family moved to Chesterfield just before my 7th birthday and I came to Leeds in1978 to study Social Policy and Administration at the University. I stuck here ever since. I got involved with the University Folk Society through friends in the late 1980’s where I got to know Matthew McIntyre. He and I were housemates when we were asked to collaborate with Mel Richardson – the late Melvis Paisley- in a production of Beowulf and there I met Sarah Reardon who was playing harp. She was considerably younger than I was and I tried to give her plenty of time to realise her mistake, but she didn’t and 7 years later in 1999 we married. We now have two daughters Rosa (12) and Grace (10) and live in “LILAC” a straw bale co-housing scheme in Bramley, Leeds.
