I'm Brian, Circuit Steward and Local Preacher.
A life-long Methodist, originally from East Sussex, I am also a circuit representative to the Southampton District Synod. My church membership is at Broadstone where I am one of the Café Church team, Pivot magazine team and, with my wife Margarete, lead occasional contemplative worship.
We live in Bearwood, North Poole, within walking distance of the northern edge of Canford Heath and of the Stour Valley Way.
I enjoy walking (although longer distances have now become a challenge) and, until the end of 2019, performing with a small, amateur theatre group of singers, dancers and actors, in local halls and in care homes.
I worked in the printing industry for over 50 years, initially as a craftsman typographer in Lewes, East Sussex, then as an estimator/planner in Wisbech, North Cambridgeshire and finally as estimating manager in Poole, retiring in 2011.
