Dave Taylor


Executive committee member

I have run my own businesses for some 30 years now, and have businesses in Manufacturing as well as in retail.  I will continue to oversee the businesses from Howick but being well established it is a fairly easy task. We currently have a workforce of about 200 people.

I was National president of Round Table South Africa in 2002 and Africa Region Chairman in 2003/4.

I was a board member of Grantleigh School for 6 years and stepped down last year to move to Howick.

I have served on a number of boards and chaired many committees in my short 50 odd years.

We were fortunate enough to meet Dudu on our visit to the SPCA and were very impressed with the operation she is running there. And although I do my best to stay off any further committees, we felt that should the SPCA feel that we may add value in any way we would make ourselves available to assist should we be called on.

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem. ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

We support ONLY the circuses that DO NOT use animals of any kind to entertain the crowds. The use of wild animals in Circus acts is inhumane
