This afternoon, there was a service of thanksgiving in Croydon Parish Church for the life of my friend Lindsay Frost, following the funeral service for family and close friends a couple of weeks ago. I'd like to thank the Mayor's Office and Canon Colin Boswell for the beautiful service. Two Old Palace pupils, Alice Parr and Sophie Winter, gave beautiful performances (Alice sang Pie Jesu and Sophie performed a cello solo by Bruch) and Colin Parker, a friend of Lindsay's from his time at sea, gave a wonderful - and witty, not an easy thing to do on such occasions - tribute that captured him perfectly. Good to see Andrew Pelling and many members of the Labour Group there. Lindsay would have been chuffed.
