Richard Atkins

Richard admits that writing his full CV might well take several pages.

"In forty years I've done everything from being a musician in the Royal Artillery and looking after sheep and pigs in a market, to flogging aluminium replacement windows door to door and working in a department store selling, though not all at the same time you understand, suits and records, greetings cards and fridges. It has been a colourful life"

For the past twenty five years Richard's life has been split.

Working for many years as a Methodist minister he has also been involved in the BBC so being up at 3.30am on Sunday morning is not a problem as Richard looks forward to another Gloucestershire Sunday Breakfast

Although now retired from his work as a full time Methodist minister, Richard loves working as a broadcaster and when away from the microphone can often be found out and about in Gloucestershire.

"Sport is also very important and I like to get my fill of football at the New Lawn watching Forest Green Rovers.
