Geoff Dodgson (UK Chaplain)
Hi, my name is Geoff Dodgson and amongst other things, a Church of England Reader and the Hon Rural Officer for the Diocese of Ely. A country boy through and through, you may wonder why I am involved in the ride when I am more at home using a gun to shoot rabbits? Simple - I come from a military family and Dad was a Regimental Sergeant Major in the Royal Artillery. My early boyhood toys were real 25 pound field guns and Mk1 Landrovers. So I have some understanding, not to mention huge respect, for those who serve in the armed forces. It is an honour to act as chaplain to the UK branch of AMRR and to lead worship at Madingley each year. I find it amazing and
evocative setting to thank God for all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice - giving their tomorrow for our today.
And, I am a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association who 'volunteered' me to lead worship on the first Cambridge, UK ride. I live a few villages west of the American Cemetry with my wife Rosemary and our two gundogs and I am a minister in four rural parishes.
