Vaughan Bidewell

Treasurer, Health & Wellbeing

Born in Yorkshire, I grew up in Leeds. I went to Durham University, where I met my wife Valerie, and graduated in Chemistry.


We moved to Gosport in 1970 to work for Cyanamid where my career switched to finance, eventually becoming Finance Director for a joint venture company between Cyanamid and Shell. I have spent time working in both America and Singapore.


I am very keen on sport having played an awful lot of cricket into my 50's and now play golf having taken it up on retirement. We have two children and two grandchildren.
