Terry joined the choir as a founder member whilst serving in Kent Police, singing with the choir in the early years until he had to give it up due to other commitments. After retiring from the force in 1996, Terry joined the British Heart Foundation as a fundraiser for the next 15 years before his second retirement in 2009. Thanks to the encouragement of choir member Paul Cox , Terry returned to the choir as a regular member in April 2010. Terry continues to sing in the second tenor section.

Terry is married to Sue, and lives in Bearsted near Maidstone. His son James recently completed a university degree in electronic engineering, and married his fellow Bearsted student Fiona at the end of the course, moving to Stevenage. Now that Terry is fully retired, he finds time to do all those jobs he has been putting off for the last 15 years. He is an active member of Rotary and his local catholic church, where he also sings with their very small choir. Sue and Terry enjoy caravaning, gardening, country walking and travel.

Terry also helps with the local scout troop on an occasional basis.
