The Office Team

Brian Gregory

Brian Gregory

With a background in The Scots Guards and Fire Service, Brian has vast experience in the Safety and Training arena. Brian took part in the 1987 Trooping of the Colour and served around the world, before joining Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service. As an amateur rugby player of both codes, formerly with the famous Heysham Atoms for 12 years, Brian now plays for his local Union side but he still follows the Bradford Bulls and has an interest in most sports.

Brian is at his most relaxed with a beer in hand, especially if Star Wars happens to be on. He has recently developed a taste for chicken's feet following a trip to Hong Kong, and when the time comes, he would like to come back as a fully trained Jedi Knight.
