Barrie Simmons

Barrie Simmons has been very involved with the project in helping to plan and construct the structure on which the fabric hangs. His parents were married at St. Mary's, as were Jan and Barrie. Their children were christened there and their son was also married at St. Mary's. There is a long family connection and strong links with the village. Having lived in Pirton again for 33 years (Jan and Barrie moved away temporarily when Barrie was in the Forces) Jan ran the Cubs for 20 years and Barrie was Chairman of the Village Hall for many years. Jan used to work in the insurance business and is now happily retired, but no less busy!
