Barry Searle

Barry writes: "I was born and brought up in Devon and have been a member of the Methodist Church in this Circuit since my late teens. After a three year apprenticeship at Bicton College in milk production I worked for 25 years on dairy farms before moving to Farms For City Children in 1997. After a spell of 18 years, 8 of which I was Farm Manager, I left the charity in the summer of 2013. I am now self- employed and run my own garden and property maintenance business. I have served the church as a Local Preacher for over 25 years which I am still passionate about. This will be my second term as a Circuit Steward, the first being when I was in my early thirties. Where has the time gone? I am married to Anne and have two grown up children, Martyn and Amanda"
