Melissa Aitken

I am originally from Canada, but also have Scottish roots.  I have both Canadian and British citizenship and moved to the UK in 1995 to pursue postgraduate studies.  I have been living and working in the borough of Greenwich since 2003.  I am a Clinical Psychologist, specialising in child and adolescent mental health which has provided me with much experience in multi-agency working. I am passionate about promoting positive mental health and believe that music participation can have a significant role in this.
I am also the mother of two children; one who has been regularly participating in FSOR for the last 18 months and another, who has enjoyed the gigs and is itching to be old enough to join in.  I joined the FSOR board in the autumn of 2016 and I am excited to contribute the development and sustainability of an organisation that has brought joy and confidence to my child

Steve Jenkins

Originally from the West Country growing up in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare before moving to London at age 18 to study architecture at Greenwich University I have, more or less, been here in South East London ever since. Learned to play guitar, badly, after graduating from university and spent my 20’s playing in almost, but not quite successful indie guitar bands and have never lost my enjoyment of making poor quality music. I have undergraduate & graduate degrees in architecture and am a chartered Architect and member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. Since 1999 I have been owner/director of my own Architectural Practice specializing mainly in the construction, renovation & modernization of high quality residential buildings.

I have a daughter who, at 12 is already a vintage and extremely enthusiastic FSOR participant & who appears to have been granted most of the musical talent available to this family. I’m really happy to be able to help FSOR to continue to thrive in any way that I can.
