HeythropPark PhilHelmn2Phil Helmn - bringing a whole new meaning to "working on the triple" - nothing negative, of course!

Family status? Married to Annemarie for ten years. We have an eight year old daughter, Emily and, on December 17th 2011, my wife presented us with TRIPLETS - Harry, Artie & Florrie. They are a bit of a handful, but everything is going very well. They are five months old now and ALL slept through the night for the first time recently!!!

Who's your hero and why? I don't have one, but I greatly admire anyone who overcomes illness or life changing adversity with a smile and a positive attitude.

What is your dream holiday? It would have to be somewhere hot where I could lie next to a pool and relax all day (no chance of that at the moment!), that also has some history to explore.

What annoys you the most? Interference and negative attitudes.

What would you change about yourself? Not sure where to start!!!!

Favourite record, and why? Most records from the 80s as they remind me of my youth.

What do you do in your spare time? At the moment, I don't have any!

What's the daftest work related question you have ever been asked? Why can't you spray hot water on the greens to get rid of the frost?
