1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I met John at a food festival in Chelmsford a couple of years ago. Ironically, it’s taking place as I’m writing this post.

    It was at the end of the day and I remember thinking “it’s Boycie, what’s he doing here ?”. We had quite a long conversation. He was absolutely charming and I bought a copy of his autobiography. The book is well worth reading. It’s honest, it will make you laugh and there’s some personal stuff in there that every man can relate to.

    R.I.P. John and thank you.

    Sad news indeed. Loved his character in Only Fools and Horses.

    I know it is inevitable that people of a certain age die - Jimmy Greaves and now Boycie - but it is sad when two people you have never met but feel you know do so in such a short space of time.

    He lived just up the road from us, apparently, though I never met him.
