He read mathematics at university and, after a 5-year Short Service Commission in the Royal Navy, taught for 30 years in the Bristol area. Taking early retirement in 1993, he enrolled at the University of the West of England to read law and then practiced as a solicitor for a further 12 years. He is a local councillor, a past mayor of WsM and his hobbies include family history research. He is also new to beekeeping. Anne Ley-Morgan was born in London in 1954 but her family soon moved to her mother's home town of Exmouth, Devon. She trained as a PE teacher at Bedford College before starting her first job at Backwell, Somerset where she met John. She then managed her own small hotel in North Devon before opening a health food shop and restaurant in Weston which ran successfully for 14 years. Anne returned to full-time teaching in 2000 and currently works at a local comprehensive where she teaches Food Technology and Child Development.
