Sadly a sign went up yesterday outside Eves florists, next to Cuppaholic by the railway bridge, announcing the very sudden death of Joe Bright in the early hours of Saturday morning and the immediate closure of the shop. Many of you will have seen him and a fair number of you will have met him, as I did, popping in for flowers on the way home from the station and he was a throughly nice bloke. He'll be a sadly missed part of the Worcester Park community.
In other news there was an incident on the High Street yesterday where an old lady went to steady herself on the large patio heater outside the Seasonal Shop and it fell on her, resulting in a crack on the head and a trip in the ambulance. I know this because Mrs Brinkster was there and helped administer aid with the help a passing cyclist, blankets from the Sue Ryder charity shop (am I going to have to take back what I've said about charity shops?) and the man from the Kodak shop calling the ambulance.
In other news the recent OnePlanet mapping project in Worcester Park has a good review here with map available here.
