Long Eaton (Erewash LPU):
Deacon Terry Street
I am a Methodist Minister serving the people of Long Eaton and Breaston, which is my first stationing. I originate from Royston near Barnsley in South Yorkshire and spent over thirty years working in the glass industry as a M/C operator before answering the call to full time ministry.
This is my first time as a chaplain, but I have lots of life experience and like chatting and getting to know people - as I have the good people at Long Eaton police station, where it is a privilege to be chaplain.
Outside work Ilike spending time with my wife Sue, walking our dog Jasper. We have four children and a thirteenth grandchild on the way, and spending time with them especially in school holidays is great fun. I also like to get back to Barnsley and watch Barnsley FC play time and ministry permitting; I also watch Long Eaton United on occasions.

Mr Peter Singleton
I am a Licensed Reader (Lay Minister) at St Martin's Parish Church, Alfreton, which means that I share in pastoral care as well as, leading church services and preaching. My career has been in teaching, mainly in the field of Religious Education during which I have gained a familiarity with other faiths in addition to Christianity.
My career began in Walsall, after which I moved to Keyworth as Head of Department in 1983 where I contributed also to Social Studies, English and Personal, Social & Health Education. In addition I've also held pastoral positions in school as well as contributing to the wider school life through clubs, trips and involvement with the PTA.
I took early retirement and since then have worked in a wide variety of schools on a supply basis finishing in 2014 at Nottingham High School. My involvement with GCSE marking continues.
Outside work my interests are centred around my family, local history, railways, Alfreton Male Voice choir and our two Springer spaniels.
I am enjoying getting alongside the staff of the Criminal Justice Dept and sharing their joys and concerns.
