November 2018 Meeting

Thursday 15th November 2018

Dunfermline Historical Society

Bruce Keith              “Bridgescapes – an Illustrated Talk”

Bruce 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 England in 1996 as Chief Surveyor with English Nature/Natural England, but kept his Scottish connections, retiring three years ago as Head of Property at SSE. Bruce’s interest in bridges stems from his childhood. His passion for Scottish history, geography and landscape is a recurring theme, captured in his book, “Bridgescapes”.

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

As usual, we meet at 7:30 pm in the Abbey Church Hall, Dunfermline. All welcome.
