I saw on a friend’s Facebook page the story regarding the memorial of Roger Ditcham.

I was the old Cub Scout that sent Mrs Ditcham an email of condolence, having heard the shocking and extremely sad news.

I am now 48 and Roger taught me (and others) many long-lasting life skills.

There are not many people like him that give their whole life to the service of others.

He was a local legend gone far too soon.

Many thanks for taking the time to report the loss of such an amazing person, who locally meant so much to so many.
