Despite having always had a head for figures, Ian Welch found his true niche in publishing and has been writing, editing and designing books and other publications for more than 25 years. Ian and wife Claire set up their own publishing company, Peran Publishing, in 2004 and are both committed to helping the Trust expand. An avid Welsh rugby fan, Ian tries to take his boys to as many internationals as possible (ticket availability allowing) and lives in the Forest of Dean.
