David Parry-Jones

David's a sad case, only ever having one job since leaving OBHS, at the Chester Chronicle. Progressed through dogsbody to news editor, assistant editor and editor through to current position, 36 years later, of executive editor. One big benefit is he met Helen, his wife of 30 years, at the paper and they have a bonny bouncing five-year-old cocker spaniel called Sadie. He's kept in touch with Ian Banner and Bryan Renshaw throughout since 1962 and latterly Kiwi DB Williams. Amazingly David has been a magistrate for seven years, notably sitting on his own once and retiring alone for 'time to think'. Writes a travel and a motoring column and would love to hear from old OBHS cronies like himself
