Andrew Ormiston- Deputy Editor and Copywriter
The elder statesman of the copywriting team, Andrew joined the Property Collection in July 2019 after a career in national and regional newspapers spanning more than 40 years.
Primarily a sports journalist – also including news and business reporting in his lengthy CV – he has interviewed the great and the good from many different arenas, such as Muhammad Ali, Lester Piggott and Frankie Dettori as well as covering domestic, European and international football.
Consequently, watching sport – particularly racing, rowing and football – are listed among many interests, which also include reading, music, travel and, surprisingly, astronomy (he did, after all, grow up in the Sixties as the Space Race gripped the world), while supporting wildlife and mental health charities are also high on his agenda.
He brings a wealth of experience to the team and tries to bring a narrative to his scripts and takes a slightly off-beat approach to features for the Property News magazine.
Andrew is married, has two grown-up sons and lives in the Fens.
