I have only just found out about Nick’s passing and I’m in total shock. What a lovely funny caring man Nick was. When I moved in next door he made me feel very welcome on the street and always had a tale to tell me. Always had a smile on his face and I loved bumping into him after I left Walmsley Avenue. A true gentleman. Rest in Peace friend x
