Roy has been with the choir since its humble beginnings in 1978 and has always sung in the baritone section. Although short in stature he has a big personality and over the years, has been involved in many activities both in the choir and his day to day life.
Roy became a member of the choir whilst still a policeman and whilst a serving officer he became heavily involved with first aid training. In 1987, in recognition of his contribution he was made a Serving Brother of the Order of St. John. During this period he was a member of many winning first aid teams at home and abroad.
When he retired from Kent Police, Roy worked for the RSPCA for ten years teaching young school children all aspects of animal welfare. At the same time he took up golf and although not an excellent player he manages to find time to play twice a week.
When he can find time, other activities include gardening and long distance walking, although age is starting to curtail the latter.
At choir pratcices and concerts Roy, together with Jan (an ardent 'groupie'), is invariably there on time. Together they have organised choir dinners and both are very popular with other choir members and always have a ready smile.
