The origins of Lloyds Storage Beds
Lloyds had been providing customers with bed bases – to match their fitted furniture for approximately 20 years, when Peter Lloyd spotted the ideal mechanism to transform our bed bases from a matching base to even more storage - our very own ‘wardrobe on the floor’. This arm of the company enables clients who only require a bed to acquire a high quality product and clients of Lloyds to create a seamlessly designed bedroom – without the hassle of trying to match a bed to their new room coupled with the luxury of even more storage.

Q. Your favourite place/s to date?
A. Most memorable our recent holiday to Peru, Ecuador and The Galapagos Islands with our Son and Daughter-in-Law. Our first glimpse of Macchu Picchu left us spellbound and the Cusco Valley was breath-taking. The Galapagos Islands are a testament to the scientists and environmentalist who work tirelessly to preserve this corner of the planet for generations to come. Each island would appear the same at first – with the input from our highly qualified guides the tiny but significant differences in the Flora and Fauna were pointed out. The most humbling experience was that the Fauna were not afraid of us at all – we were able to observe them from quite close quarters – a very powerful illustration of the fact that they did not perceive humans as predators – a rare experience. This trip taught us a tremendous amount about the significance both historically and environmentally of these wonders of nature and the need to preserve them.
Hard to choose a particular place overall, we have visited and cruised both; along the Amazon and around a few islands of the Galapagos, the experience was amazing we learnt a tremendous amount about the significance both historically and environmentally of these wonders of nature and the need to preserve them.
BHPA - Qualified Paraglider-Pilot
Q. Where is your favourite place to fly
A. That’s a difficult one – it’s a toss-up between Porterville, South Africa and Wanaka – South Island, New Zealand. I participated in the New Zealand fun competition for a number of years and even had a go at the Nationals as a visiting pilot. Lots of early mornings and briefings with pilots who manage hundreds of hours of flying time a year. The Paragliding community is an exceptionally friendly one, I have yet to meet a pilot who was not prepared to share a tale or two and offer their top tips for making the best of the terrain.
Q. Have you had any scary moments?
A. Olu Deniz, Turkey for a competition – locked in a spiral at four thousand feet and speeding towards the sea at a rate that was eye watering, I managed to deploy my reserve parachute just in time – ‘When in doubt – Chuck it out’ as my instructor often told me and landed in the sea. Only a few bruises and equipment damaged and, still here to tell the tale.
Q. Is that competition level or just leisure?
A. Purely for leisure – favourite route in this country so far, the circuit around Rutland Water.
Anything biographical and of course my default publication – National Geographic.
I took this up in the 60s and still have the roller skating boots I purchased from the skating rink at that time, have changed the wheels over the years – all still in working order although my moves a little rusty these days.
I also do my best to avoid household chores and gardening...
