A Northerner who has lived in London for so long his accent is skewed beyond all recognition- some people hear Welsh, some Scottish, but nobody ever hears the no-nonsense Boltonian ringing over the waves of Old Father Thames! I’ve worked at Thames Rockets longer than most, which is very strange as I am the youngest looking. To be found on stage and occasionally on the telly when not on a speedboat. I have spent the last few years with Thames Rockets throwing ropes & honing my skills on the boat to the point where I now happily refer to myself as a ‘Professional Shouter’, a skill that comes in handy at any pub quiz (which sometimes makes its way onto the boat) and yelling at children who push into the bus queue. My motto is ‘you learn something new every day’!
