Guest Speaker Bruce Keith

"Bruce Keith is a surveyor and environmentalist, having started his professional career working on several Perthshire and Aberdeenshire estates and in Edinburgh with the Department of Agriculture. Bruce moved to Peterborough in 1996 as Chief Surveyor with English Nature but kept his Scottish connections, retiring five years ago as Head of Property at SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy). Bruce's interest in bridges stems from his childhood. His passion for Scottish history, geography and landscape is a recurring theme, captured in "Bridgescapes".

In addition to completing his book, Bruce has spent his retirement as an ambassador for the sustainable use of water resources globally, and, as President of his professional institution last year, (The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)), has travelled extensively from New Zealand to Finland via Africa. This has left little time for golf, which is evidenced by his handicap."
