R.I.P. Simon

Simon was a part of Ham Parade for many years sitting and drinking on this bench with his small group of friends at all hours and in all weathers. Now he has gone.

I did not know Simon well at all but I did speak to him a couple of times, many years ago, when he still went to the Hand and Flower back in the days when Tom was in charge.

He was always drunk but never violent, never rowdy and never any sort of problem. He'll be missed.

  1. He was a hero - he once rescued a little dog from a very hot car one summer - the owner had gone away and left the poor little thing in a hot car with all windows shut. Definitely one of Ham's charafters who will be sorely missed.
