Tribute to Simon Hatchwell

Dear Friends, I am sorry to inform you of the passing of our teacher Mr Simon Hatcwell. Please let the other Whittingehame boys know.

It was a pleasure seeing him in Brighton at the reunion. Four of us saw him at the Synagogue where he prayed the Haftora.

May He Rest In Pease.

Jack Abraham

It is with great sadness that we heard of the passing of Simon.  Having only just had the pleasure of joining the Hatchwells for tea at their house on Surrenden Rd, Simons sudden and unexpected death came as a shock. 

My acquaintance with Simon and Kirsten goes goes back to Handcross as a young pupil in the late 1950`s and we`ve kept in touch ever since.  Visiting Brighton will not be the same.

Our heartfelt condolences go to Kirsten and their children.
Louis & Tilly Mandel
