It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we learned of the passing of one of the brethren, Simon Harrison, on 19th June 2017.
Simon was a much respected staunch supporter of the Sandgrown Beardsmen attending the first official meet at SB HQ – 279 Church Street Barber Shop (6th June 2015) and many meets hence, winning just as many raffle prizes – contributing hugely to the Sandgrown Beardsmen charity chest in the process.
Several of the brethren attended Simon’s funeral service held at St Kentigern’s – Newton Drive, a stone’s throw from SB HQ – on 7th July, paying their respects on behalf of all, then seeing him on his way in grand fashion at the Blackpool Cricket Club.
And, as expected, Simon’s family were as warm and gracious as the man, even at this sad time.
Simon was a dapper gent with a welcoming and ready smile for newcomers to the Sandgrown brotherhood, a true gentleman and a fine beardsman who will be sorely missed by the brethren and those who knew him.
