  1. I only got to know Arthur after I had retired. I met him at scripts at the Bluecoats. He encouraged me to write and was so helpful. He had a great sense of humour and a knack of making you feel at ease.
    Liverpool poetry, music and writing scene will be all the less without him.
    Thanks Arthur.
