Hugh was invited to run a construction project for SWW on the edge of Exmoor in 1976. It was during this time that he became a Christian and ultimately made Devon his home. Hugh is married to Clare and they have a wonderful daughter, Ruth. They joined STBC around 1993 where they have worshipped ever since. Hugh finally, finally hung up his hard hat and retired from civil engineering in April 2021. He enjoys meeting people and now looks forward to the opportunity of some sailing, restoring a classic car and getting nearer to the top of the to-do list!
