Chairman of the FRMS, joined Derby RMS (as the Jubilee Music Circle was
then known) in 1965 and is currently its Secretary. Having previously
served as FRMS Chairman he resumed the rôle in an acting capacity
in 2013 and was elected to the position the following year.
His musical tastes are varied and have been broadened through recorded
music society membership. He is a regular presenter not only to the Jubilee
Music Circle but to other societies, and relishes the challenge of devising
programmes that are both enjoyable and informative.
Apart from his musical interests he has found plenty to occupy his retirement.
He is Secretary of his local Church, as well as playing in the music group
there. He also enjoys travel (preferably by train), solving and setting
cryptic crosswords (he has had a few published on crossword websites),
cooking and language study, speaking French, German, Spanish and Welsh
- though not claiming great fluency in any of them
