Mark joined our team in May 2019. His Great Great Grandfather was a boat builder, his Great Grandfather was a Master Mariner (who captained masted merchant ships across the world in the late Victorian era), and his father was a blacksmith at Liverpool Docks in the 1950s, maintaining the dredging fleet for the Mersey and Docks Harbour Board. When not working at Wincham Wharf, he is occupied by his energetic 7-year-old son – Freddie – who keeps him young at heart!
