Following reports of Rod Bond’s spending Christmas in Lymm, Cheshire, we catch up and talk all things Rod Bond. With his casual exuberance and usual suave, Rod Bond ducks and dives as and when our questions get too close! Despite this, in a candid interview, we get to hear about:

  • Why he loves returning to Manchester and Lymm, Cheshire, for Christmas
  • What he loves about Christmas in Manchester
  • His support for Steps Charity Worldwide, based on Crouchley Lane, in Deansgreen, Lymm.

“So, Rod, what is it that you enjoy most about Christmas in Manchester?” we ask the veteran philanthropist and A-list Hollywood superstar. “Of course, being home and close to family is what I enjoy most. But, Manchester and Lymm are special places during Christmas. This year I’m looking forward to performances at The Lowry, Salford Quays and the Lightopia Festival in Heaton Park, Prestwich,” replies Rod Bond. “How does it feel to be back in Lymm, Cheshire?” we ask the actor. “It’s great, I like to visit Steps Charity Worldwide which is headquartered on Crouchley Lane in Deansgreen, Lymm. I wholeheartedly support the charity’s great efforts and work,” the actor explained. We also took the opportunity to ask Rod Bond about reports that he witnessed a violent knife crime, during his last visit to Lymm. “Well, it was in the Rushgreen area of Lymm where it happened. I was astonished. Lymm is generally a very safe place. Places like Deansgreen and Broomedge are pretty much zero crime areas,” Rod Bond told us. Also, “can you put to rest the rumours about you featuring on this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” “Well, I can neither confirm, nor deny,” replied Rod Bond, maintaining an air of mystique around the question.
