Rev'd Anthony Bewes

Team Leader

Anthony leads the Lymington Rushmore team.  He was at Stowe School before reading History and Politics at Birmingham University. That was followed by youth work in the East End of London and two years teaching Theology back at Stowe.  He subsequently read Theology at Oxford prior to parish ministry in Kent. Anthony loves various sports (though is becoming more of an armchair enthusiast with the passing of time), fly fishing and collecting antique prints others would throw away. Married to Nicola, they have four young children and live in Oxford. 

Rev'd David Reid

Junior Camps Leader

David heads up our Junior Holidays. He loves living in Oxford (having moved here back in 2002), but as a keen sailor he wishes it was just a little closer to the sea! David was an undergraduate at Durham University where he studied Natural Sciences, had a second stint as a student when he was training for ordination, and then spent nine years working for a church in Oxford. He is married to Helen and they have two small children (Timothy and Rachel) who are very excited about being taught by their Dad to sail a boat one day!

Will Clarke

Staff Worker

Will grew up in Hertfordshire, and first became involved in Lymington Rushmore while at Durham University. His degree was in economics, with a particular focus on financial markets and corporate policy towards the end of the three years. On camp Will loves banana boating (particularly when he manages to stay on!). In his spare time, he enjoys playing squash.

Frankie Knight

Staff Worker

Frankie is one of our Senior Staff Workers.  She’s no stranger to Oxford, having studied Spanish and Italian here.  After graduating she spent three years working at Dean Close School, Cheltenham, and being trained at a local church, before joining the Lymington Rushmore team.  Frankie has a Diploma in Theological and Pastoral Studies from Wycliffe Hall and she’s a trustee of TISCA, The Independent Schools Christian Alliance. She works part time for Lymington Rushmore and serves at her local church where her husband, Joel, is a curate.  

Rebecca Nicholl

Staff Worker

Becca grew up in Oxford and, after spending time at university in Scotland and working in London, returned to live here in 2017. An Art History degree means she loves visiting art galleries (and generally talking about art to anyone who will listen!) She enjoyed studying at the Cornhill Training Course, finishing in 2020, alongside her work for Lymington Rushmore. In her spare time she enjoys hanging out with friends and family, visiting museums and being by the sea!

Whilst there, she loved learning ancient languages and studied Hebrew, Syriac and Aramaic. In her spare time she enjoys going running and working out at the gym!

Ed Aldous


Ed first became involved with Lymington Rushmore in 2009 as a Junior member. He grew up in the small county of Rutland before moving to read Physics at the University of Bristol. Free time is spread widely between playing the little known sport of Fives, cricket to a very low standard, as well as singing and the odd toot of the trumpet.

Billy Backhouse


After growing up in the picture-perfect Somerset village of Monkton Combe, Billy spent 3 years studying economics (with some sociology and philosophy mixed in) at Cambridge University. In his spare time, he enjoys choral singing, playing jazz piano, and setting and solving cryptic crossword puzzles. He’s also keen on black coffee, real ale, and classic British comedy shows.

Mike Keep


Mike retired from schoolteaching in 2016 after teaching A level Economics at Repton School in Derbyshire for 37 years. A Yorkshireman by birth, and a passionate Sheffield Wednesday supporter, he now lives in Bromley in South East London with his wife Nicky. They have 2 grown up sons (both economists!) who are living and working in London. Mike plays tennis twice a week and is keen on his garden: he is very excited to own a greenhouse! 

Alex Pilcher


After growing up in a small Essex village, Alex moved to Bristol University to study Economics and Management. He spent most of his time trying to avoid the library and trundling around on a rugby pitch instead. He moved to Oxford in September 2019 to start working for Lymington Rushmore. He spends his free time playing rugby for the mighty Oxford Harlequins and losing to his housemates at squash.

Francis Stanford


Francis joins the team after spending three years in Bristol studying Chemical Physics. After 12 years of endless days of ragger on camp, he’s absolutely buzzing to create an indoor ragger pitch in the office and win the staff small courts competition (whilst working really hard as an associate). Outside of work he’s an avid sports fan, particularly coaching rowing and watching the rugby. He enjoys playing around with photography and cameras and is a massive foodie, cooking and food blogging his way around town. He’s excited to explore all that Oxford has to offer but mostly to find its best restaurants!
