David Chandler


I have lived in the area most of my life, coming to Balne at the age of seven with my Parents and two brothers’s as we began farming at Thorntree farm. As a family we attended the parish churches and have been involved in parish life over those years.

After leaving Snaith Secondary school I have worked for a few local companies including farming, block making at Plasmor, prestige car delivery and HGV driving both nationally and internationally.

I am married to Susan and have two grown up sons, Richard and Andrew, and we are blessed with two grandchildren.

For several years I was involved in charity work taking aid by lorry to Romania and Albania.

In 1990 I was licensed as a Lay Reader after three years training, and have been privileged to lead services and Preach in all the churches of Great Snaith.

My other interests are gardening, walking in the countryside, working out in the gym and on sunny days we love the open road on our trike. I enjoy travelling and visiting interesting place at home and abroard, particularly the USA in recent years where my eldest son lives in California.

The simple things in life are the best! Sharing a meal with good friends and family and having some fun - you cant beat it!

It would be lovely to see you if you are visiting The Great Snaith Parish.
