Some very sad news this morning - our friend and London Walks colleague Harry Jackson has passed away. He had been unwell for quite some time but his death was sudden and a shock to us all.
Harry you were one of those fellas who, when I saw you coming toward me along the road, I always thought to myself: "Oh good! It's him!"
A scabrous remark, a joke, a story, always with a warm humanity. You illuminated me on everything from politics to RML Routemasters to the comparative merits of The Dennisons vs The Mojos (I never met a bigger Merseybeat expert).
Karen & I will never forget your kindness to us as both a guide & a friend and how you always asked after our daughter Isobella by name.
Whenever I walked along Whitechapel, your London Walks stomping ground, even when you were around, it always reminded me of you. And it always will. So when I walk along Whitechapel from now on, I will never walk alone.
Thanks Harry. Rest in peace, pal x
