George Tite – Vice Chair

Current Role at BMT:

  • Vice-Chairman
  • Member of the Land & Estates Committee

Elected as Trustee: November 2000

Background / Bio:

George Tite was born and brought up in Apsley and went to a school at Two Waters. He then went to Berkhamsted School.  As a child he spent a lot of time on Two Waters Moor and Roughdown Common, experiences that inspired his keen interest in wildlife.
On leaving school he began his career in agriculture.  He later joined John Dickinson in Apsley as a fireman, rising to the rank of Station Officer.  George has had a smallholding for many years, during which time he has kept a variety of livestock; now he has ponies and a few sheep.  His main hobby is carriage-driving and he is often to be seen driving his piebald mare round Felden and Bovingdon.
Townspeople, George believes, should be given a taste of the countryside in an urban setting and not just another park.  He believes that the Trust must ensure the maintenance of grazing land and use the Moors for as many different outdoor, educational and recreational pursuits as possible.
