I’m John Redgate and have been working with Healthwatch since July 2016 on projects and now more regularly on core engagement work. I enjoy meeting people of all backgrounds and consider myself a good listener and interested in what people have to say. Most of my working career has been working in farm advice and rural development, also working at times on Rural Stress initiatives and giving training in farm business management in eastern Europe.
I have completed several long distance cycle rides, Lands End to John O’Groats, Hebridean Way, Hadrians Wall, Coast to Coast. I continue to play in Brass Bands, a passion since school days, and currently play the Baritone horn in a band that has reached the 1st section of the National Brass Band Championships.
