Revd Anthony Bewes
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.
Revd David Reid
Junior Camp 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!
Pete’s originally from Suffolk and went to Newcastle Uni to study French and Business Studies but found himself graduating in Marine Engineering instead! He even chose to stay on for another two years working for a local church, though sadly he never picked up the Geordie accent. Pete enjoys sports and loves getting the opportunity to try something new – the more bizarre the better! He works on co-ordinating the activities that take place on Lymington Rushmore camps.
Frankie is no stranger to Oxford, having studied Spanish and Italian at Oxford University. 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. Alongside working for Lymington Rushmore Frankie has recently been awarded a Diploma in Theological and Pastoral Studies from Wycliffe Hall and she’s got married to Joel. Frankie is a trustee of TISCA, The Independent Schools Christian Alliance.
Holidays & Operations Coordinator
Lucy is our Holidays and Operations Coordinator. She grew up in Surrey and joined the team in 2016 as an Associate after three years studying Theology at Durham University. Whilst there, she loved learning ancient languages and studied Hebrew, Syriac and Aramaic. In her spare time she enjoys working out at the gym and has recently taken up Kickboxing! She loves to spend time catching up with friends for coffee and exploring the many museums in Oxford.
Junior Staff Worker
Alex moved over from Romania in Year 12 when her father decided she needed a change of scenery. She went on to study Maths at Durham University before working at Kingham Hill School for two years as a Pastoral Assistant. Alex is delighted to have joined the staff team. She is enjoying living in Oxford and thinks that it will be the best place for her to develop her creative side as she has recently taken up watercolour painting. In her spare time, Alex loves to read, swim, go for walks and catch up with friends.
Sophie grew up in Cambridge going to St. Faith’s and King’s Ely and was invited to Lymington Rushmore there. She then headed up north for university where she studied Psychology. When not working she enjoys singing Hamilton and Disney with her housemates and playing board games.
Beatrice first became involved with Lymington Rushmore at the age of 11 when growing up in London. She moved to Bristol to study French and Spanish at university, and had the privilege of spending her year abroad living in Paris and on the coast of Chile. She loves travelling, exploring new places and meeting new people, drinking coffee and hanging out with friends, and musicals.
