    Terry is Reading-born and completed a local apprenticeship as an electronics engineer, before branching into project management and specialising in defence-related initiatives, until his voluntary early retirement in 2016.

    With a love of Reading and its history and considerable experience in leading a Reading-based organisation, he set up his own guided walk initiative – Terry’s Reading Walkabouts, as a non-profit making entity. In the five years since launch, he has established thirteen different themed routes and has raised over £9,400, most of which has been donated to local charities.
