Thanks for posting the pics. I can see what you mean about the style of the funeral. More celebration of his life and his favourite things than solemnity. Bet the rum and hog roast went down well. It beats sarnies. I hope Simon's family got some comfort from the many people who turned up to remember him.

Somebody commented afterwards that they left feeling "strangely uplifted". That's a very good description. I felt the same. Not sad, just feeling positive. We've said Goodbye & can move on.
One last thing -Simon shared a workshop with Miles Sherlock of Jackhammer hotrod supply. Miles's latest project is the Flatlands Motorama hotrod show in Rosmalen, Holland. It's a bigger, classier version of the previous Rocking Jalopys show, that we took the Pop to back in 2013. Simon organised the "lowbrow" art display at the innaugral show last year, bringing together artists from all over Europe. Next year's art section will now be in memory of Simon/Big Nef.
