John Smith-Daye: Meet the Partner

WHO ARE YOU John Smith-Daye
WHERE (Place) Clacton-on-Sea
Work done for LC Resident partner in Maldon office – thus anything and everything that gets thrown at me by our many and varied clients staff and contacts, as well as HM Revenue & Customs.
MY LIFE outside hobbies likes etc. Collecting, fiddling with and riding old English motorcycles, of which I have a few! Following my 5 children around, picking up the pieces and taxiing them about also takes up a fair amount of time.
1st JOB Replenishing the shelves of a travelling grocers van in Clacton, after school – and it was primary school too, my parents sent me out to work very young…..
