Last week we bade farewell to John Shackleton, our theatre maintenance technician for the past six years.
John has been an invaluable team member who quickly won us all over with his integrity, calmness and diligence.
No job was too challenging, and the range and sheer number of projects he completed over the years was remarkable.
He was ingenious in his problem solving, and characteristically modest about the wealth of technical knowledge that he freely shared.
Perhaps most importantly, he is one of the kindest and most amiable people you could hope to meet, and it has been an absolute privilege to work beside him.
John leaves us to enjoy a delayed and very well deserved retirement, and we wish him well for his future adventures with his wife Helen.
One thing's for sure: he's a jolly hard act to follow.
