Mark Puddy

Church Warden

Mark, a GP at Wargrave Surgery since 1989, has recently stepped down from being a full time partner. He and his wife Susan, a GP in Woodley, are continuing to work 2 days a week in their surgeries. They moved to Wargrave in 1993, when they started attending St Mary's. He tries to set a good example to his patients by keeping fit, walking, cycling, skiing, canoeing and jogging. Otherwise, for a rest, he enjoys theatre and opera and playing bridge. Their daughter, Helen, is training to be a GP. Mark used to be a decent golfer, but sons, Matt and Tim, now hit the ball much further than he does.

Mark was elected in July 2021 as churchwarden.
