Chris Rose spent much of his working life as a Freelance Architectural Photographer in and around The Cotswolds.
Planning for retirement and a move to the Dursley area introduced him to Kingshill Arts & Meeting Centre where it soon became apparent that there was an opportunity to help in the development of the house, socialise in an arts-centric environment and pass on some photographic skills in the form of Kingshill PHOTOGROUP.

Initially involved with the local dramatic society (DODS) who refurbished the house once it was handed back from Stroud District Council, she has undertaken various roles relating to the arts programmes and developing social activities.
