The team

Amanda Thomson Managing Director

I don’t want a super-power, but a time-machine would be very handy. I’d have a pint with Boudicca, fearsome and fearless lady! And I reckon Meryl Streep would play me in a movie of my life – she can’t sing that well either…

Michael Harper Head of Technical Services

My superpower would be to read minds, though this might be less a blessing and more a curse at times. I’d love to have a beer with Churchill as my inspirational figure, and if someone’s going to play me in a film about my life, well that has to be Nick Frost – no time in make-up for him!

Butler Head of Meet & Greet

I’ve got cuteness as a super-power completely licked. If someone were to play me in a film of my life it would have to be Liam Neeson to channel my inner Irishness.

Sally Day Resource Planner

I’d go for invisibility as a super power. If deserted on an island then ideally I’d have Bear Grylls, but as he’s not an ‘item’ (unless I were dating him then we two would be ‘an item’), then knitting needles. Olivia Colman would need to play me – she portrays both comedy and drama with equal credibility. She’d need to!

My favourite film is The Italian Job – you can never get bored of that escape from Turin. Ever resourceful, I’d take a large sheet of polythene to a desert island. You can shelter under it, collect water in it, make a solar still of it.

Steve Spencer Regional Dispense Hygiene Technician - North West

I’d like to have the power of invisibility, so I can be that fly on the wall… I’d be happy stranded on a desert island if I had one of my guitars, and if Eric Clapton were cast to play me in a film of my life, then it might actually sound good too!

Phil Reeve Regional Dispense Hygiene Technician - East Anglia

I’d want time-travel as a super power. And on that theme, my favourite film is ‘Back To The Future’. Ever practical, if stranded on a desert island, I’d like a sailing dinghy please. But if I have the super power then I suppose I wouldn’t need it. I’d want Larry David to play me, perfect casting.

Rob Parham Regional Dispense Hygiene Technician - South East

I’d want Jedi powers – and a beer with Carrie Fisher. If stranded on a desert island I’d like a power boat but that’s probably not playing the game, so a Swiss Army knife would be the next option. Who’d play me? Lee Mack.

Bob Smith Regional Dispense Hygiene Technician - South West

I’d like to be able to travel anywhere on earth without the need for planes, trains or flue powder. If I could have a beer with anyone, it would have to be JFK, and I’d tell him not to go to Dallas. My favourite film is easy – that’s Goodfellas, and it would have to be Ewan McGregor to play me in a story about my life.

Allan McKellar Regional Dispense Hygiene Team Leader - Scotland

My favourite film is Top Gun. Great cinematography, great soundtrack & ‘The Cruise’ before he went weird. Have you watched Bear Grylls, The Island? I’d need a lighter – got to get that fire going. And to play me, I feel Simon Pegg would do a great job.

Chris Cowey Regional Dispense Hygiene Technician - Scotland

I’d like absolute infallibility as a super-power, but that might make the “Desert Island Survival For Dummies” book a bit redundant. Best film ever, The Usual Suspects, with that cinematic middle finger of an ending. I think Jason Mamoa should play me, but he’d have to slim down a bit first.

Mattia Foschetti Regional Dispense Hygiene Technician - Scotland

My favourite movie is “The Blues Brothers”, I’ve always loved it for the amazing music and the 2 inspired leading actors, and it reminds me of my uncle who watched it with me countless times. I’d have a pint with Ernest Hemingway, and I think Jack Black would do a good job at playing an older version of me in a film about my life.
