Bells ring for Alice, May’s Skip Chick bride-to-be

Bells ring for Alice, May’s Skip Chick bride-to-be

SHE’S a belter – and she’s just got engaged to this month’s Skip Hunk. Say ‘congratulations’ to Alice Moore, of Pips Skips, Norfolk.

Hi! Tell us about yourself.
I’m Alice Moore, I’m 24 and I work for Pips Skips as accounts manager.

Tell us more… how long have you been there and what does your job involve?
Just under five years. I carry out day to day accounts and take telephone calls for skip bookings.

What’s good about working there?
We have lots of laughs; the sense of family and the support that is always there when you need it.

What’s the worst bit of the job?
The only bad bit about the job is that you can never keep a clean car! One day at work and it’s back to being dusty and dirty.

What’s the one day at work you’ll never forget?
The day I will never forget is the day I got engaged. My partner and director had both told me I was needed to go and pick up a new work’s truck and no-one else was available. When we got to the location, we were texted to say the gentleman was going to be over an hour late. We went on a little walk which is when Danny popped the question!

Congratulations! Definitely a different way to spend a day at work! How do you spend your free time?
Outside of work I spend a lot of time with family and friends, helping care for animals, dog walks, meals out and shopping.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I would probably say driving to Wales to collect two sheep in the back of a pick-up truck.

Just say you could have superhero powers, what would they be and how would you use them?
My superhero power would be teleportation so I could get everywhere quicker!

You need a faster work van. What song really sums you up?
Gerry Cinnamon – Belter.

And it is a real belter, too. Tell us a fascinating fact about yourself.
I am not the most fascinating person. However, I have been on a Nile cruise on which I saw some of the most amazing things, and my dad got offered five camels for me – a deal he almost couldn’t refuse.

How dare he?! You’ve got to be worth at least six camels! Sum yourself up in three little words.
Clever, loyal, generous.

Reckon you deserve a lovely holiday to celebrate your engagement. Where would you go?
I don’t have one location just a few I would love to visit – Dubai, the Maldives, Mauritius and Barbados.

You’ll need to ask the boss nicely for extra time off. Imagine being able to have anyone in the world around to dinner… who would it be?
I would love to have Ricky Gervais over for dinner as I love his work and find him incredibly funny!

Ever met anyone famous?
As a child I met Frank Worthington on a plane and I stayed in the same hotel as Howard Webb.

Mingling with all the stars there, Alice. Imagine winning millions on the Lottery. What would you buy?
A farmhouse with some animals and a new car!

You better add in your own, personal car wash because it’s going to be one very mucky car. Finally, tell us your best joke.
What do you call a pony with a cough? A little horse.

They do say the old ones are the best ones… and that was a very old joke.
We won’t hold it against you – you’ve been a top notch Skip Chick.
