Supporting Our Group
Matt is Committee member for the group, currently holding the post of Group Secretary. Matt enjoys attending our shows and events and helping to promote the group, usually with his 1980s Jaguar on display... (see below photo from a newspaper article!)
Matt is classic car crazy, which led him to take his advanced test & join Gloucestershire Advanced Motorists. Owning, driving, maintaining and restoring are some aspects of motoring Matt finds the most enjoyable (so most of it!). If he's not under the bonnet, or the whole car for that matter, You'll find him saxophone in hand, playing either for a local jazz orchestra or one of the RAF Voluntary Bands.
Matt works as an IT Infrastructure engineer for a global company, IT Infrastructure is the bit as a user that you can’t see or touch – all the electric string that lets things talk to each other.
