Pete's Online CV


Peter ScargillHi, I’m Peter Scargill. This is our website and it is the place to get information. Firstly a quick summary: I’m 63, I live in the UK and Spain with my wife Maureen and 3 cats. When in the UK we live in Northumberland (our grandchildren live in Whitley Bay) – in Spain we have a place in Andalusia.

Around WarkUntil recently I ran an IT consultancy specialising in the technology needs of small businesses – today I manage our holiday rental cottage in Bellingham with Maureen   – For 14 years I was the IT Director for the Federation of Small Businesses and Chairman of the Communications group within that organisation. I have been invited to various parts of Europe as a guest of the ESBA organisation and recently held the post of vice-chairman of a pan-European group, a subset of the ESCO group specialising in the IT sector. As a result of this I’ve had the opportunity recently to travel to Dublin, Gibraltar and had many, many trips to Brussels.

Galera, Andalucia in SpainWe have 5 grand-children. Maureen for many years was a teacher in Hexham Middle School and we both enjoy cinema and travel. We’re still trying to get to grips with the Spanish language – without too much success to date, I may add. We both enjoy travel, cinema and visiting friends. Maureen is into reading copious amounts of books (on her Android tablet), I’m currently engrossed in developing ever-increasing knowledge about the popular ESP8266-based hardware and software as well as an increasing interest in the new Raspberry Pi2 (lots more of that in the technical blog).
