In No Sandwiches, No Flat Roofs and Other Lessons for Life, Barry Natton recounts his life story from being an apprentice carpenter and joiner to becoming the chief executive of Riverside Housing Association, a position he held for 31 years.

Natton tells of his time working for Costain Construction, in Coventry, then Nigeria – during the civil war in 1966‑67 when he was arrested on three occasions – and in Leeds, prior to taking up what he describes as his life’s work in social housing.

The book is £10 with all proceeds going to charity and is available from [email protected]
