Peter Gale – Director

I have lived in the village since late 2005. I never really knew anyone except for immediate neighbours because of work commitments, I used to be a Distribution Manager at EMI Records and then a National Planning Manager for Nestlé.

8 years ago I retired (wahoo) and my wife Lyn, bought me a dog and signed me up for an allotment plot.

I have been a member of The Donisthorpe Community Group, The Orchard Allotment Society, volunteered at the Youth Club, Speedwatch, Emergency Response, installed the Rainbow Benches (with lots of help) and organised Apple Day with friends.


I love fly fishing, F1 and most things outdoors.

I’m happy eating, especially cake and love to chat when out with the dog.
