MCO Matters “We’re Not a Bar to Good PR!”
The Marham Matters team have given me a superb opportunity to introduce myself, Sqn Ldr Paula Willmot, the new MCO at RAF Marham.
As the strap line says, do come and use the team in SHQ as nine times out of ten we can really ‘big up’ your event or publicise it far wider that you thought possible.
A little about myself; born and bred in Eye in Suffolk and in my 25th year in the RAF, its my first time at RAF Marham. Previously I was the MCO at Cottesmore and am currently mid way between my Harrier to Tornado conversion course! Media experience has mainly been as an ‘embed’ minder on Ops and despite not having been at Marham I deployed with IX(B) Sqn in 98 to Corsica for three months when the current AOC was a Wg Cdr. I have also worked with TTTE, E3D and been an RAF recruiter for nine years so a broad brush of experience.
Outside of work I’m using the skills learnt in the building trade to renovate an old house and enjoy volleyball, running and cooking. In fact a few new articles will be appearing over the next few months, Paula’s Pantry being the first. A monthly tried and tested recipe. Look out also for a feature called ‘In The Hot Seat’ where we profile a key member of the Station and ask some desert island disc style questions. In addition there will be local astronomy and wildlife as well as all the usual favourites to enhance the experience of being at RAF Marham.
Suffice to say, it’s YOUR media office, come and see us and let us be your gateway to great PR on base and in the local community.
