Reader Roy Pinnock
I am a widower with 3 children, 12 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Initially I lived in Lilley for 48 years during which time I was a worshipper at St Peter’s Church, was a churchwarden and was invited to become a reader in 1971 and was licensed in 1975. During my time at Lilley I wrote 4 books about the village, in particular its proximity to the Chilterns.
Following redundancy in 1986 a house move was necessary and we chose to move to Barton-le-Clay as we had a daughter living in the village. I was duly licensed at St Nicholas’ Church and have completed 31 years as a Reader there. In addition I have regularly supported St James Church Pulloxhill in my capacity as Reader. I have now completed 42 years as a Reader.
My hobbies are gardening, reading and writing, the latter is now mainly concerned with sermons and regular contributions to the parish magazine
