Roy Tricker (Reader - St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Readers) has been awarded the British Empire Medal for services to Heritage in Suffolk (Ipswich, Suffolk).
Roy was born in Essex, spent his early childhood in Hertfordshire and moved to Suffolk when he was 10 years old. He was a teacher for most of his working life, and Head of Religious Education at Copleston High School, Ipswich, for 18 years. For the next 11 years he was South East Regional Field Officer with the Churches Conservation Trust, and then took early retirement in 2002. He has been a Reader since 1970, and also a Lay Canon of St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
A crusading church-crawler since the age of four, he spends his time sharing his passion for these amazing buildings, praising and promoting them from the pulpit, projector and coach seat. He gives countless lectures and slide shows, has written over 200 church guidebooks and some published works, and has broadcast on radio and TV. He firmly believes that the love of churches is absorbing and infectious for people of all religions and of none , and also that every old church is the most interesting in the country, because it is a unique character, well worth getting to know and love.
