Ted was our neighbour, for several years when we lived in Stilton. He became a good and trusted friend and was kind, thoughtful and generous of spirit. He also had a wickedly dry sense of humour and would make us laugh on a daily basis and latterly with his witty letters and cards. He helped save us from floods, caught our escapee Jack Russell (which he rugby tackled on many occasions) on the cricket pitch. We will miss his visits to us at Christmas for a ‘cuppa and mince pie’. A lovely man!
