Pepper - Rest In Peace
It is with great regret and sadness that I report the death of a much loved local character, Pepper Hicks. She was loved by all who knew her and is especially mourned by Ginger.
Pepper attended Cheltenham Ladies College and excelled in gymnastics. The headmistress writes "Pepper was a pillar of our community, a prefect and a potential head girl".
Pepper had her career mapped out for her. She was the standing Liberal Democrat councillor representating Poynton South and rumour has it she had intended to offer herself up for leader of the Party due to the untimely resignation of Mr. Menzies Campbell. Alas, her full potential will never now be realized.
Her funeral took place last week. She had a full Humanist burial service on a piece of land behind the Anson Road Amenity Tip that is dedicated to private burials and the scattering of ashes. 'Jeruselem' was sung while her ecologically friendly cardboard coffin was lowered into the ground. In other words, Peter took her to the tip and dumped her in a skip.
