Death of John Simon


John Simon, Marchmont resident and longtime Marchmont and Sciennes community councillor died on Saturday. His death came at the end of a long illness - though as recently as last Tuesday he had attended the award ceremony in the City Chambers for David Rintoul, another local community activist. He was upbeat and cheerful on that occasion. Our thoughts and condolences are with his wife Audrey and his family. A funeral service is scheduled for next Tuesday (22nd) at 11am at St Marks Unitarian Church on Castle Terrace.
