Connect with Alan Winter:

As a mature student, I gained a BSc (Hons) in Business Systems and Marketing at the University of Luton in the 1990s.  In my career, I have worked as a Software Test Analyst at Xerox, and before that as a Computer Operator with BP Oil, BP, SGFM, and Unisys. And I've been a Houghton Regis Town Councillor mostly as a Liberal Democrat 2007-2015, although I withdrew from party politics in 2014, and since then like to think of myself as politically independent.

I try to be helpful and spend a lot of time looking into different things. If I sometimes seem brief, it's because I'm up against the clock, so apologies in advance. If I write something that seems very provocative, I probably mean no harm, I'm just trying to bring out your strongest counter-attack, to enrich the debate, if there is one going on!

The work I do online enriches me, and one thing often leads to another, making life interesting. The time I put into what I do would stagger some people. I have never received any financial reward for what I do, and I cover my own 'office' and computing expenses. If you think this is a useful service, please consider making a donation, if it's only to buy me a coffee, it all helps!

Whilst I edit websites for Houghton Regis News Desk, Dunstable News Desk, Luton News Desk, I also run Facebook Pages and Twitter accounts for the same. Again, what would it cost to buy such a service? Donations would help support what I do, photography costs and petrol, for example.
