Banana Chat - meet Trevor Rayment

by Banana Crumble | Dec 26, 2018

My name is Trevor and I am from Collier Row, Romford in Essex. Originally my Dad had a cleaning business.  I went to art college for 3 years and then became a window cleaner ha ha!! I now own a cleaning supply business but am basically a glorified window cleaner. Because of my job, motorcycling and all the sports I’ve played I have met so many good inspirational people and have learnt to discount the bad useless downers that try and suck your energy, whether they can help it or not.

I used to be a motorcycle racer and you learn to get up and go again which carries through my life. I’ve left it late after being in cover band ‘Squabbler’ for 20 years, to now write and record my own music. Don’t let people tell you you’re too old to start anything, who cares, if it makes you happy. My music might make me a millionaire, more likely just be proud of the fact I’ve done it.

Everyone can do something. No one is more important than anyone else. I’ve had big problems in my family, so has everyone, it’s not a competition, get on with it and act positive.
