Bruce Poulter (St 64-69) , who lives with wife Jane at Merley in Dorset, says he has now definitely quit work, after a short-lived retirement attempt two years ago. That is when he left French-based hi-tech multinational Thales at Crawley in Sussex. Bruce specialised in developing software that automatically tests avionics products. He admits to feeling relief when his designs cooperated. “It is hugely satisfying when you run the code and see it works,” he explained. So satisfying, apparently, that this year Bruce suspended his retirement to do a stint of similar work much closer to his home at Merley, when he spent six months at Wimborne with the British defence firm Cobham. Daughters Rosemary and Louise have long left the nest and Bruce spends much time aboard his Mirror dinghy in Poole Harbour, as well as being a sidesman at the Lantern Church in Merley. After years of little exercise and miles of driving to Crawley, he says he now walks or cycles everywhere. Bruce reports that older brother Nigel Poulter (St 60-64) lives in Warlingham, Surrey and is spending much of his retirement walking. “He has now got his life back in order after sadly losing his wife Laraine to cancer eight years ago” Bruce said. Nigel’s four children are all married, and he has two grandchildren. He is a church warden at St Christopher’s church and enjoys organising local activities. (10/17)
