Patricia Gregory moved to Bristol in 2013 to be closer to two of her three sons. She has been retired for many years after a career first as a software programmer, then computer consultant from the late 60s until the mid 80s and later as a primary school teacher and maths tutor.
Patricia volunteered with International Voluntary Service and Notting Hill Housing Trust in London, in her twenties. Later her voluntary work centred around history and heritage, including being a founder member of a Heritage Society in a village near Lincoln. She has been a volunteer with Bristol Aging Better since 2015, assisting with Kickstart, commissioning panels, helping with recruitment of staff, becoming involved in some BAB projects and representing BAB at two conferences. She is now a member of BOPF’s Transport Action Group and Housing Action Group. She is an active member of BS3 over 55s Social Club and runs a craft group for members. Her passions are history and arts and crafts, especially printing and embroidery.
