Matthew Batham

EDITOR

Horror movie geek, lover of pretty much all cuisines and a voracious reader. Londoner born and bred but also very happy to get lost in the countryside. Don’t speak to him until he’s had his first coffee of the day and never challenge him to a karaoke battle.

Lee Owen

SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER

A graphic wizard who loves eating cereal out of a mug. Hates slow Wi-Fi and losing his usual parking spot.

Nicknamed Postie. Aspiring to be the Wolf of the West Mids. A lover of sport (blessed with supporting the best team in the Midlands, Coventry). Partial to a hot chocolate.

Needs 5 heaters and 3 coats to start working in the office. Watches way too many TikTok’s and is obsessed with her cat.

Tom Beeston

Beer pong champion (team cider all the way) with a mild obsession for Doritos. Not great at conversation before 10am but the king of Dad jokes from then onwards.

Zoë Tanner
