I am originally from the West Midlands and moved to Tynedale for the 2nd time in 2010. Retirement was looming and what a wonderful place to see out the "leisure years." Prior to moving I was in banking for 25 years and latterly self employed in the finance industry. I am married to Linda and we both worship at Haltwhistle Methodist Church. I have been a circuit steward since 2014 and try to use my skills to, hopefully, see Methodism thrive in this area.
