Richard Simmonds

Workshop Manager

Working to help children grow and develop into happier, healthier grown ups?! That is something I can’t wait to be a part of!

I’m excited to be joining Pentagon as a workshop supervisor and becoming part of that special team to be the difference for our children growing up.

I have always enjoyed being creative, therefore after leaving school I trained in carpentry and have since then worked in various roles related to woodwork. For the past five years I have been working as a designer, as well as CNC machinist for a large design and build company in Bristol. I love seeing projects through from an initial client idea to a finished installation.

Outside of work I spend a lot of time in playgrounds with my 2 and a half year old daughter! I also love cycling, running, and working on small projects in my garden workshop.
