What a Guy!

20 April 2006 by Dawn

Finding himself in the company of journalists, photographers, film crews, artists and celebrities is all in a day’s work for senior press officer, Stephen Guy. But just recently, Stephen has been enjoying a share of the limelight himself.

Stephen’s unique perspective on life – evolved through years as a cutting-edge news reporter – makes him the ideal candidate to mull over the morning papers on Radio Merseyside’s Breakfast show. He also writes the intriguing ‘Maritime Tales’ for Saturday’s Liverpool Echo.


However, it is his voluntary roles within the community that have catapulted him into the media spotlight of late. As Chairman of the West Derby Society, Stephen has played a key role in securing funds for his beloved ‘Lowlands‘ – dubbed Britain’s most beautiful community centre, and home to the West Derby Community Association since 1957.

Stephen is also on the management committee of the Friends of Croxteth Hall & Country Park, where one of his roles in running the bar for Friends’ events. He hastens to add that the behind-the-bar activities haven’t got him into the news yet!

    Remembering Ellan Vannin caused me to put a post on the Isle of Man Geneology Message board, informing folk of the Mersey ferry trip.
    If you can spare the time there is a lady who claims that there were at least two survivors. She gives a lot of information and detail, including an aborted book they hoped to publish, and something called the Thompson papers.I mentioned this briefly to a Radio Merseyside reporter Alan Jackson, I think he said his name was ,just before the sailing.Colin.
