Keith Adair Vice-Chair and Groups Co-ordinator

Born and schooled in Ipswich, at age 16 I joined the RAF to train in the field of Telecommunications. This led to a variety of postings around the world. Married in 1970 to Joyce, we spent our next three years in Cyprus, both working at RAF Episkopi. On leaving the RAF I joined British Petroleum with whom I remained until retirement. In 2006 we returned to Cyprus, settling in the heritage village of Anogyra. The geology of the island grabbed my interest immediately which has led me to a long association with the P3a. My other interests include playing bridge and being part of the technical team for Stage One theatre productions.
