People of Park Hill: Jim (Gamal) Martin - Resident
Jim has worked at Park Hill as building manager for over 6 years
“I feel like Park Hill is my baby – to look after as it grows. It’s a fantastic place.”
No day is the same and I love going to work. It’s the people, who are lovely – approachable and appreciate the work I do. I have friends here now - young and old.”
Jim and his wife have lived in Intake for as long as they have been married - 35 years. They have three grown up children and four grandchildren.
“I have a special place I sit on a break – a place people can’t see me. There‘s a lot to do here and as people know me they come up to me to ask about something or other. I like that but it’s also good to be able to sit and enjoy the place from time to time.
“I really like the community here – I attend the residents parties - they always invite us and the businesses here. The last Summer Party had a bouncy castle, music and food plus an ice cream van - it had a really great atmosphere.” It’s a real pleasure working in and around this iconic building and watching the community develop and prosper.
