Bill – Metropolitan Branch

BillAs a fitter and turner, Bill has a background in press toolmaking and specialist machine design.

Having spent 30 years in industry, Bill worked for 15 years as a secondary school trade teacher, before retiring.

Bill joined Solve in 2011, when a friend enlisted his help on a particularly challenging Solve project. Bill got such satisfaction from seeing the pleasure and benefit the project gave to the recipient, that he decided to become a Solve Volunteer.

“I would encourage all volunteers to establish a buddy system with another volunteer. Other volunteers may have skills that you are lacking so you can chat to them and bounce ideas around before you get started."
