Poet’s final tribute to the Herald
A FAMILIAR face in Egham through his work at the St John’s Church centre and the museum, Rhyming Simon started penning poems as a schoolboy.
He has published more than 40 books of poems and here is his timely tribute to the Herald & News.
All good things come to an end
All good things come to an end, just like our local newspaper, the Staines & Egham News.
All its great reporting, journalism and first class photographing – to say goodbye to all of this is not only a very sad time but a real shame.
Years and years of changes within our local area all with stories covered perfectly – a real insight into what’s going on in and around our hometown and beyond.
Without it we would never have known what’s going on.
But now comes this situation in ‘modern day life’ where the Staines & Egham News is about to end.
All that good news to be no more – no such thing as bad press going to print any more.
A newspaper to be sadly missed by each of us – one and all – to be given credit – some kind of award.
A big thank you and a well-deserved reward!
