(BSc Mathematics 1991)

I remember the pubs of Broomhill and Ecclesall Road, and the famous never forgotten Fat Cat. 10p bus fares. The end of Thatcher. I remember walking out my last exam and thinking – now what am I going to do?

I was born in a small cold northern fishing town, but I was Made in Sheffield
