Peter Farncombe


Peter and his family have lived on Boothroyd Avenue since 1991.  He looks forward to contributing now by joining The Pocket Board as a sort of ‘miscellaneous affairs’ representative – fitting in to support the work of other Board Members and the community as a whole.  He will apprentice himself to learn the ropes and help out where possible.

Peter moved into The Pocket after years of life in the Bain Housing Cooperative, where as a member of the Board and various committees he worked to keep the community intact.  Over the years he has also volunteered with other organizations in the broad social services sector, (e.g. the former ‘Youth Services Network of Metro Toronto’).  He has a long professional career with provincial government and arms-length agencies.   These days his main interests are music, cycling and writing.
