John Savage 

John was born in Slough (then in Buckinghamshire) in September 1930. He was educated at Slough Junior Technical School and qualified for a School Leaving Certificate.

He completed National Service in the RAF as a Ground Wireless Mechanic and trained as a Communications Engineer at Regent Street Polytechnic with a Higher National Diploma.

He went on to be part of the team developing the Electronic Telephone Exchange System for the British Post Office (which became British Telecom) whilst working for GECPLESSEY.

John's main hobby, other than HRB, is playing bowls both indoors and outdoors for the West Moors Memorial Bowls Club and the Dolphin Indoor Bowls Club..He is also Chairman of THE BOURNEMOUTH BIG BAND SWING and JAZZ CLUB.

In 1967, whilst working at Plessey Taplow, he was part of a team that  established a hospital broadcasting station to the Royal Canadian Hospital in the grounds of the Cliveden Estate at Taplow. This was later extended to the two hospitals over the other side of the river Thames in Maidenhead. He later went to reform a previously defunct unit at the hospital in Royal Ascot.

John joined HRB in December 1997 and is now one of the Trustees.
