Before moving to Worcestershire, I worked in the media in London for over 30 years, making some good friends but also some colourful enemies (who always seemed to work for the Daily Mail). However, Michelle and I have been overwhelmed by the reception the local news media have shown us in the two years that we have been running Mr Simms Worcester. In the last week, we have featured on BBC Hereford and Worcester, Free Radio, and the Worcester News – all welcoming us back to Worcester High Street and subtly indicating their own sweet preferences at the same time!
These are strange times in which we are living, aren’t they?
It has certainly been a strange period in our history hasn’t it? I’m so pleased and fortunate to be able to report that Michelle and I are in good health. I’m really looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 15th June when Mr Simms Worcester re-opens.
I am a writer and historian with a passion for sweets and football (not necessarily in that order!). I write fiction and non-fiction and, after working in the media for over 30 years, now run a sweet shop with my wife, Michelle, trading as Mr Simms Worcester. I also write about the history of sweets in a series of blog posts: 'A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Sweet Shop.'
