Roy in Tongdean Lane

by Jeremy Homeward 15 August 2009

Who remembers the lovely disabled chap, who used to sit for hours outside his family home, just on the lower side of the Railway Arch at Tongdean Lane. I remember him as Roy.

Now there was a person who cared not if one were well heeled or a ragged butted rover, he was always delighted to see one and would enthusiastically wave his arm and contort his whole person, and with a beaming smile, make anyone who would care to acknowledge him feel that ‘here was someone who was pleased to see them. I loved to see, and spend a few moments with him.
