Lewis grew up hanging out at his dad’s shop on Mill Road with his siblings and friends. He remembers playing football with five sons of another business owner ‘in the insurance carpark, off Mill Road. We found that space. It was rarely used as a carpark, though sometimes we did get in to trouble. We just all just all naturally gathered it that point, from our dad’s shops.’
He also remembers the seesaw he and a friend made with a ladder and a bucket, outside his dad’s shop when he was about 11. ‘In the dirt.’
‘As children we are just wired to play aren’t we. It’s an instinct as a child, to make play’.
