He has travelled his own circus and met the outstanding personalities of its colourful world. Sir Garrard is also a noted breeder and trainer of wild animals and owner of one of the most famous private zoos in the country. He was Mayor of Maidstone for many years and offers a vast store of entertaining reminiscences."
