Rev'd Anthony Bewes

Team Leader

Anthony studied history and politics at Birmingham University before doing youth work at a church in the East End.  This was followed by a spell teaching and working as a chaplain’s assistant in his old school. Theological college and parish ministry followed before he joined the Lymington Rushmore team and moved to Oxford.
He loves … his wife, their four children, their dog and the game after which he was named, Padder.  In his spare time he watches his children playing sport he used to be able to play and contents himself with the sports he still can – golf and real tennis!  He also loves every opportunity to encourage people to think about the person of Jesus and what it might look like to follow him today.

Rev'd Simon Tomkins

Junior Holidays Leader

Simon is married to Nikki, and they have 5 boys. Before joining the LR staff team, he was a vicar near Stoke-on-Trent, and still can’t quite believe his job is now to help run these amazing holidays. He enjoys running, rowing and other sports that don’t require too much hand-eye coordination.

Phoebe Paget

Operations & Events Coordinator

Phoebe moved to Oxford in 2018 to work for the Titus Trust, having graduated from Durham University in 2014 with a degree in Anthropology & Archaeology, and then working in London. She loves playing netball, baking, sailing, tennis, watching rugby and spending time with her husband, Harry, who works at a prep school in Oxford.

Isla Cohen

Team Administrator

10 years since Isla first came as a camper, she is now so excited to have joined the staff team. Since leaving University in Canada, Isla has worked all around Oxford in both education and ministry. She loves hosting friends and watching too much TV. She dreams of one day owning a golden retriever. 

Hannah Horwood

Staff Worker

Hannah first got involved with Lymington Rushmore back in 2012 after a friend at university invited her along to lead during second year of uni. Since then, the pull of games galore, fabulous food and epic excursions (the love of laser tag has only grown stronger!) has kept her coming back year after year! And now, she couldn’t be happier to be joining the Lymington Rushmore staff team! After living and working in Bristol for 9 years, Hannah is excited to see how Oxford’s pizza scene compares to Bristol and hopes to one day fulfill her ambition of attending an Oxford college ball! 

Susannah Townsend

Staff Worker

Susannah’s first involvement with Lymington Rushmore was as an eleven year old camper on Junior A 2009 where she had the best week of her life. Her enthusiasm for camp remains undimmed, so she’s delighted to now be joining the team as a Junior Staff Worker. Having studied English Language and Literature at Oxford University, she’s excited to return to all her old library haunts. When not reading a book, she may be found wild swimming, climbing, or at the theatre.

Titus Waldock

Staff Worker

Titus grew up in Cambridge but spent his university days studying Natural Sciences and exploring the chilly Northumberland coastline with friends. In Oxford he enjoys playing rugby for a local club, trying the most exotic ice cream flavours at the local store G&D’s, and when he gets the chance is always keen for a game of garden cricket.
