Jet Harris

Brian's note

I first learned the news when my neighbour stuck a note through my door in the early hours of Saturday morning. It said “JET HARRIS has died of cancer aged 71.” He knew that I would be upset…

There wasn’t much about him in the papers and there are probably many reading this who are wondering, “Who He?” but for thousands of fans all over the world Jet Harris was the embodiment of everything that made early British rock ‘n’ roll so great. He was talented, he was mean, moody and magnificent but best of all, he played bass guitar with The Shadows.

The Friends publish the first Guide book to Richmond Park

Although established by Charles I in 1637 and fully open to the public since 1872, Richmond Park - the largest of the Royal Parks - has not, until now, had its own guidebook. With the Park attracting nearly 3 million visitors per year, the Friends of Richmond Park (FRP) decided that this gap in the market should be filled and the result is The Guide to Richmond Park, a compact yet informative and broad-based 140-page handbook to be published on 28th March.

As Sir David Attenborough says in his foreword to the Guide: “Richmond Park is a very special place… (its) wildlife is exceptional particularly for somewhere so close to a major urban centre”.
