“There’s all this action going on, this rumpusing, but the bit that sticks in the head, well for me at least, is the him-and-his-Mum aspect of it. And the food still being hot.”  Colin Heinink

Colin Heinink is a primary school teacher, as well as an actor for The Woodhouse Players. Also: a bit of singing, writing, oh and a “hospital radio shock jock”. All of this paling in comparison to his phenomenally talented dog Martin who blogs about culture under the auspices of The Dog What Blogs
