Dave Spencer (Chair)

I have worked in the health, fitness and leisure industry for 30 years working for some of the largest operators in the industry which included working 11 years in London with 4 years working at the Harbour Club in Chelsea which is one of the most prolific clubs in the UK. I currently work for Freedom Leisure a leading charitable trust provider overseeing leisure centres and active community teams covering the Forest of Dean and Malvern Hills. As some of my sites are dual use, I work closely with our site partners with these being local secondary schools within the area I manage.

I am sports mad with football being my main sport and played for local teams over the years but now enjoy the more relaxed veterans’ football. 

My reason for wanting to become a governor was so I could play a part in my daughter’s education and I am pleased to say that since she started at Trinity she has grown in confidence and has really taken to her educational journey. 

 

Nicholas Rynn (co-opted)

I spent 37 years in the Army as an Infantry Officer leaving as a Lieutenant Colonel.  In my last decade of service I specialised in Human Resources.  At one stage I was responsible for the career planning of 13,500 soldiers.  I then ran the Army's Internal Complaints System.  Whilst living in Glasgow I spent 6 years working as a volunteer with the Scottish Children's Hearings - under Scottish law the responsibility for putting children into, and taking them out of, Social Services care lies primarily with a Panel of lay people. I was a member, or in later years the Chair, of such Panels.  This gave me an intimate, and detailed, understanding of the massive challenges faced by Children who need of the sort of help and care that only Social Services can provide.  I am a trained Harassment Investigator and am a Civil Service qualified job interviewer.  I have written, and run, large budgets and management plans and run organisations with up to 500 employees. 

On leaving the Army I set up my own firm, Nicholas Rynn Limited.  I research and write Expert Witness Employment Reports for the Civil Courts.  I specialise in personal injury claims made by soldiers and airmen who have been medically discharged from the Armed Forces.

 I arrived in Hereford just short of 3 years ago - my daughter is a local GP and I help look after my two school age granddaughters (who are not at Trinity).  I am a firm believer that each of us has a responsibility to try and make our community a better place.  That is why I have become a School Governor.  

 

Mrs Hilary Thomas (LA)

I have lived in the local area for 28 years, and my four boys all went to Trinity Primary School. They loved its open space and enjoyed the opportunities that a larger school gives. In the last 20 years I have been both a teacher and a school consultant listening to the views of children. I now work in a charity supporting families. I have experience of school leadership as an Acting Head and SENCo, but most importantly I bring the experience of being a parent of a mixed bunch of lads, some of whom struggled in school. I am therefore passionate that schools develop the whole child and develop an enjoyment of learning for ALL children.
