May I add my own tribute to the Middy’s weather man Hugh Thomas, whose death was reported in the Mid Sussex Times in last week’s edition of February 21.
In a former life on the Middy I had many dealings with Hugh, who was always reliable and informative about the local weather scene. He was also extremely polite and amenable, a true gentleman to deal with, if I can use that rather old-fashioned word in today’s busy world.
Apart from the weather, we had many chats about cricket and his love of the game always shone. He will be missed.
