Eighteen-year-old Jack, who lives in Great Lumley, applied to become a member of the city’s Mason’s Company shortly after his 18th birthday last year – following in the steps of Beth, father John, a senior manager with Northern Power Grid, and paternal grandfather Bob, the warden of the company.
Jack is currently preparing to sit A-levels in biology, chemistry and maths over the next few weeks and hopes to take up a career in research laboratories in the pharmaceutical industry advancing the cause of medical science. This summer he will join a scientific survey team in the rain forests of Honduras examining the habits of bats and other small mammals. A second week will be spent scuba diving surveying marine life off the country’s coast.
