Hi Pete - My wife Alison and I worked with Dave Wiggins in the Co-operative Bank in the late 1970's. We were blissfully unaware of his death. We had assumed he would still be at James Riley Point with a big pair of binoculars set up for the olympics. All the more of a shock as he was our age. I was going to see if I could find him to ask if he knew how easy it was to park near Pudding Lane DLR, as we are taking the dogs there and meeting freinds later in January.
I still tell the story of David paying money into the Bank of England on behalf of the bank, but somebody had messed the paperwork up meaning the Bank of England gave David £170,000 in a plastic bag to take back to work. At this time a typical 2up 2down was about £10000. But he was very honest, and caring, one of life's good guys.
We would appreciate any information you feel you can pass on.
Philip & Alison Ridealgh
