Meet the Host

Mark Walmsley

I was born in Hull in the olden days and joined the Royal Navy as a Naval Airman in the fleet air arm. After serving my term I got into the signage industry, working may way up to National Contracts Director with the firm I was with and ultimately setting up my own Digital Printing business and later, a sweet shop.
I’ve been a playwright having had many plays performed around Hull’s Amdram theatre circuit, I am a level 3 community arts facilitator in creative writing, a level 2 teaching assistant, author of a book called “Clarity, Insanity, Hamster Wheels and Poetry” which is a Poemography and have took to the stage with performance poetry events at Hull Truck Theatre and The Hull Freedom Festival.
During my early retirement years I spend my time being an avid potterer and Radio Presenter on TMCR in my adopted home of Thorne and being part of the best community in the country.
