A good companion

ON BEHALF of Fernhurst Good Companions, may I wish Richard ‘Tich’ Smithers, our regular coach driver from Richardsons of Midhurst, all the best of health after seeing him in your paper on his mobility scooter recently.?

Tich and I go back a long time as we were fishing mates, regularly going to Weymouth sea fishing with the late Frank Barlow, our skipper.

I fished with Frank for nearly 30 years and Tich used to enjoy his food, as well as his fishing, so we had some good times together.

If Steve Parry, a fireman in Midhurst, knows the whereabouts of Trevor Brash, married to one of Steve’s sisters, I would like Trevor to get in touch – address below.

Take care, Tich.
