Anthony Beevor

I have been living in East Grinstead for nearly 20 years having lived in Sussex and Surrey for even longer. I am a member of the Rotary club of East Grinstead Meridian and also the East Grinstead camera club.

My main interests in life include Rotary, photography and golf although the latter is played is not particularly well. I am a chartered surveyor by profession and I'm still in practice in East Grinstead.

I joined the East Grinstead Meridian club nearly 20 years ago when my wife and I moved to East Grinstead and have experienced a great deal of fun and fellowship with the members both socially and are fundraising and service activities.

The radio show on the Meridian FM is a new venture for us and at the time of writing this article is somewhat of a novelty and we are having to learn fairly fast on how to make presentations, structure the news items so they can be of interest to our listeners and to operate the hardware systems as part of the radio show.

I hope that as my colleagues on the show and myself are able to project to the listeners what Rotary is, what it stands for and what it does for both the community and internationally. We also hope to encourage other members of the community to join us.

My taste in music is fairly eclectic covering old-style rock, modern jazz, what is often described as alternative music and some classical. I hope to be able to demonstrate these tastes on the show in the future.

I hope you find the show fun, interesting and informative and I look forward to being with you in the coming weeks and months.
