I became a trustee and secretary of TRAIN in September 2015, having lived in Didcot since 2013. At TRAIN’s annual review I was impressed by a presentation on TRAIN’s Kenyan dam-building project for ex-offenders, which planted a seed in my mind about getting involved with TRAIN. Having retired from my work as an insurance actuary, I am an adviser at Citizens Advice. I am also secretary to the steering group of Didcot Community Bank, which launched in September 2015. I am on the board of Swan Credit Union and a member of Didcot Methodist Church.
