Bryan Turner was an "incomer", who arrived in Welney in 1956, and became probably the
most influential person in Welney in modern times, working tirelessly in both his professional
capacity and in many voluntary roles to improve the lives of everyone in the Parish.
Bryan came to Welney to be Headteacher at Welney's primary school taking up residency in the school house with his wife Peggy. He was however much more than a mere academic schoolmaster, being a gifted sportsman and musician, and very he soon was involved in the village Cricket and Football clubs, and many other Parish organisations too.
School Headteacher 1956 -1986Bryan Turner was well known throughout the Fens, whether for education, religion or sport. He was a member of the management committees of both the Isle of Ely and Upwell football leagues, and was a qualified MCC cricket coach.
A truly remarkable man.
