Blair was Executive Director of Bournemouth YMCA a post he has held since 1990 and retired from in 2014. Blair has been married to Jan for twenty-nine years and is the father of four children.
He is committed to drawing the best out of people as he is to partnership working. The launch of the area’s first community radio station, Hope FM 90.1 has put him in a strategic position of being able to give local people a voice and you can hear his dulcet tones every Tuesday and Wednesday morning on the station. In May 2011 Blair was elected to Bournemouth Borough Council, serving on the Cabinet with Portfolio for Adult Social Care.
