My name is Michael Dexter Elisha and I live with my family in Hyde End Lane, Ryeish Green.
Academically I attended Clarks College, Leicester and have attended courses at technical college and the Open University.
Like many young men I served in the Army for two years as a National Serviceman, after which I spent many years in the motor trade and I was a member of the Institute of Metal Finishes. A subsequent career was as the owner of an art gallery in Gloucestershire with a branch art shop in Reading.
For the past 47 years, I have been an active member of St Mary’s congregation in Shinfield and a Reader for some 30 years. My vision for the future is to do all possible to promote the Good News of Christ and encourage others to do likewise.
