Role at Souter
"I like to think as, people usually ask me, “what do you do?”"
I like to think as, people usually ask me, “what do you do?” My title is a house steward- people don’t know what that is. I work in the lighthouse, so I say I’m a lighthouse keeper. I do everything really, apart from put the light on every night. But now it involves, there’s a lot of business we have here, 27,000 last year, so my role is to make sure the maintenance is right, the place, the lighthouse is clean, the machine’s working, interact with the public, just tell them anything they want to know if I’ve got it, so I do a bit of everything, really.
