About John Glover
John was born in the Humble Spud in Little Downham in January 1963 during an episode of Steptoe and Son.
He was schooled in Little Downham and Littleport before embarking on a glittering career with British Rail. When heâ€™d burnt himself out working for the railroad he transferred his talents to a grateful BT, where, like his trousers, he still turns up.
When not helping to keep the nations railway signalling systems and phones in a high state of readiness over the past 25 years, John has played football to a low standard, â€˜vocalisedâ€™ for local cult band The Approachable Pigeons, been a school governor,broken 100 at golf, written an episodic novel â€˜Cauliflower Droveâ€™ and was a columnist for The Green Un football paper for two seasons. His keen interest in beer, reading and whacking a white ball with a stick has been kept in check by his wife and two daughters who all live in a badly maintained house in Littleport.
