Steve graduated from Nottingham University in 1991 with a 2.1 BEng (Hons) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Since then he has worked in computer hardware and software development. In academic circles he performed research and development work in the Computer Science Department at Nottingham. In commercial circles, he has spent time developing computer software for Sage in Gosforth and software and hardware for a small company that provided systems to the airline industry to read passports and other identity documents.
Wherever he is, Steve usually finds himself helping people with their
computers. When they were in Canada for the year in
2005 Steve set up two computer suites in the church they were
volunteering at - one for the youth of the church to use for fun and the other
for distance education Bible college students using the church as their place
of study. In 2004 during a trip to a Mexican orphanage with a
Canadian team from the same church, Steve spent time repairing and updating the
assortment of computers there.
In 2008, when Morpeth was flooded and the library had to shut leaving the town without its most popular public internet access point, Steve set up a suite of computers with internet access at New Life Christian Centre for the public to be able to use.

For several years she was the administrator for New Life Christian Centre and now provides the office support for Behest Computer Services.

And why the name Behest? Well, take the first two letters of our first names and our surname - STeve and HEather BElleguelle, put them together and you get STHEBE which sounds rather silly if you can work out how to say it at all! Reverse the order of the pairs and you have Behest which is a word that means 'an authoritative command' which reflects the relationship we believe we should have with computers - we are in control and they do what we command.
We hope we can be of good service to you and help your computers to serve you well.
