Brummie in Berkshire, married to Angie, with 3 married children and 5 grandchildren all living elsewhere. After studying Modern & Medieval languages at Cambridge University, I took a PGCE at Oxford and taught German and French in schools until the 1980s, when I switched to computer languages, initially for a German company. I worked as an IT consultant in the public and private sectors until March 2016. I retired in 2019 but am no less busy for that. My parish (Wargrave with Knowl Hill in Berkshire, C of E) asked me to lead on creation care in 2010. We began with a talk from JRI President Sir John Houghton, whose brother David lived next door to the church. This triggered a transition group in Wargrave. Audits on buildings and energy followed. We are currently focussed on improving biodiversity and engaging children in church-led wildlife sessions. I have a passion for justice and am parish representative for Fairtrade, Tearfund and Christian Solidarity Worldwide.
