“Hey up, all Beard Members! I'm Rich, 42 from Sheffield.
“I'm a lorry driver working in the scrap metal industry for 21 years, and I've been married to my wife Angela for 22 years.
“I have been growing my beard for 43 months now - all going good, with plenty of piss-takes from work colleagues.
“I try to keep fit by swimming and plodding round our local dam. I love Rock Music.”
