Windtunnelonian becomes Preston Mayor

 

Brian Rollo became the 690th Mayor of Preston at the Inaugural Ceremony on 17 May 2017

The photograph is of the social gathering afterwards in the Harris Museum atrium in which he was joined by three other Windtunnelonians: John Hargreaves, Bob Tognarelli and Les Green.

Councillor Brian Rollo was born in Northumberland, on the Tyne valley to the west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.  He attended Walbottle Grammar School where he did his A-Levels before studying at the University of Liverpool.  He then went to work for British Aircraft Corporation, which we now know as BAE Systems, working in Wind Tunnels for forty years.  He settled in Preston in 1972, marrying Trisha in 1977.
