Michael Froggatt

Charley Knoll

Nanpantan Road



I am Michael Froggatt born in December 1933. I have been a Parish Councillor for Charley for eight years and I live at Knoll House, Charley on Nanpantan Road, Nanpantan – according to the Post Office. I was born in Loughborough and have lived in this area all my life. My family purchased Charley Knoll Farm in 1951 but I did not come to live in the parish until 1962, but I have lived here ever since, living here when the Motorway was driven through the heart of the parish, possibly the most momentous thing to happen in our area in the last 50 years.

My interests include the countryside and nature, books, most things mechanical, driving as something to take pride in and enjoy, and motor sport. As an ex-farmer I am interested in the course that agriculture is taking today. I have also worked in the motor business and am now semi retired, if you can call it that while assisting my son in his efforts to make a living. He, incidentally, has lived all his life at Charley Knoll and was married at the Parish Church in 2008.
