Many of you will remember him I am sure and maybe some of you have got Jim'll Fix It badges. He was a one off and wish there were more like him. Having said that there are lot but sadly go unnoticed for the good work they do. I am glad he got recognised for his.

Very sad news. He did a lot of great work that I think many people have forgotten about.

I'm afraid he never fixed it for me, probably just as well

Yes, R.I.P.
My friend and I asked if we could sing with Brotherhood of Man, but said friend bottled out. I can't thank her enough now!

Hi, I think that is a brilliant story. Dare I ask how old you were when you sent the letter?

I'm shocked

I've did a few, shall we say "interesting" things in my younger days but even I would draw the line at that !!
I mean come on!! who would want to walk around looking like a Mr T wannabe in Sir Jim's Ratners finest.
