Po­etry in mo­tion – a trib­ute from Rhyming Si­mon

Surrey Herald/News - - COMMUNITY -

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!
