Roger Long

Biography

Roger Long was born in South London in 1947. In the late sixties he began a career as a primary school teacher. He met his wife, June, while teaching in Kent and they moved to Cornwall at the end of the seventies with three children from June’s previous marriage, and another on the way. Their second child was born eighteen months later. By the mid nineties the stresses and pressures of teaching were beginning to take a toll on his health and Roger took an early retirement from the job that had given him so much pleasure. He and June continue to live in Cornwall and both work part-time while enjoying the freedom that semi-retirement provides.
