Meet Joe

Joe Doogan, Fresh Expression Team Member

Originally from Salford, Joe loves to provide opportunities for people to explore spirituality and faith in many different ways, including art and craft, Shared Reading – and teaching the ukulele! A musician, artist and songwriter, Joe has been with the team since January 2020. As a qualified Luthier (instrument maker), he is keen on carpentry and is currently developing a ukulele-making course. He, with his wife Kate and son Caleb, lives near Penny Lane.

“The plan to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
