This week’s Humans of Weston article features 69-year-old John Tierney.
John, of Worle, was born in Scotland and spoke Gaelic as a child, before moving to Birmingham and learning to speak English and Latin.
John has been in Weston for the past 13 years and formerly worked in a car factory.
He said: “I was a pipe fitter who dealt with machinery, filters and hydraulics.
“I went to college to learn what I needed to know at the time.
“I came to Weston to have a look around with my dogs and I stopped here. The time has flown past.
“I miss the canals in Birmingham and walking up and down the canal banks.”
John said he enjoys caring for his pet dog, Bobby, and watching sports on television.
He said: “I like watching the Rugby World Cup and I like the cycling. I don’t like cycling myself, but I do like the Tour de France.”
