ABOUT JES PARKIN

Jes Parkin was born in the 1950s in Kingston upon Hull, a large fishing community on the River Humber, in the North East of England.

 

Her father was a Radio Operator on the trawlers, which meant he would be away at sea for three weeks at a time, home for two days, then, back to sea again. 

 

She missed her father when he was away and always looked forward to the precious time, although short, he was at home.  

 

Her mother often took her and her sister to the fish dock to wait for her father’s trawler when he came home. 

 

She has memories of waiting long hours on cold, dark winter nights on the quayside as one trawler after another came alongside before going through the lock and into the dock.
