Originally from Cumbria, Barry Metcalfe joined Birmingham Education Authority as a teacher, retiring in 1996 from the Headship of a large, city primary school. During 56 years in education he led projects with other schools in the UK and Northern Ireland, from Information Technology to Investors in People, before coming to live in Mickleton in 2002

Barry became involved in the village, joining various village clubs. He looked for areas of community life which were not being met and set about filling them. To date he has raised in excess of £85,000 through grant applications and by entering various competitions – all of which has been used to support village activities. He does everything on a voluntary basis and regards his time as well-spent if he manages to have input into village life by persuading others to join him. He is a great believer in team effort.
