Introduction from the BFG Chairman Mark Veale
Posted by Mr Administrator
I have gladly accepted the baton of ‘Chair’ of the BFG and wanted to take the time to introduce myself. I have lived in Berkeley for 6 years and my daughter Rosalie is currently in year 3 at BPS. My eldest child (Henry) left BPS this year, having now begun his journey at KLB school. Career-wise, I was a chef for over 20 years, spending 5 years working in London for a rather aggressive chef called ‘Gordon’, before moving back to my hometown of Bristol to be Head chef of Cadbury House Hotel and then later Executive Head chef of the beautiful Thornbury Castle. Five years ago I started a new role working as Head of Technical Sales for a catering equipment company called Nisbets.
In my spare time I love playing and supporting football (my team being the mighty Bristol City), I still love to cook and entertain, and have recently become quite obsessed about running. Feel free to follow me on various social media platforms to be bored rigid with details about my latest trot around the neighbourhood.
As a positive and enthusiastic person I really do welcome the role of the Chair of the BFG. We have an amazing school and I think by bringing everyone together we can create a wonderful partnership between the school and community and make some money!
