This Friday 15th June is set to a busy one with the day starting early at Pete Popes funeral taking place at Hither Green Crematorium 10.45am followed by a gathering of friends and family from noon at The Dog and Bell where food and drinks will be served up to all in his honor.
Pete died of lung cancer in May after many months of failing health which followed a decade of declining fortunes. He was well known and loved for his straight forward thinking and action on social and community concerns in his beloved SE8 and is missed by all who knew him.
A further Session is planned for dispersal of his ashes on 24th June with a noisy marching band heading out from the Birdsnest to Ha’penny Hatch for 5pm. bring a drum or something else to bash!
