Neil Ward As the son of a Professor in environmental politics and a BSc Geography graduate, it was perhaps inevitable that Neil would end up working as a civil servant in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. This, combined with being the husband of a Civil Engineer who designs tramways, leads to many interesting transport discussions around the dinner table! Neil is an active member of, and occasional preacher at, his local New Frontiers church and helps to lead the Defra Christian fellowship group. He is currently studying a BA in Theology part-time.
