Thread Name: Obit: Neville Nicholson (Nov 2013)
Subject: Neville Nicholson
Many people out there will know Neville Nicholson who has been doing the rounds of the folk clubs and festivals for many years, often acting as steward. I have just had a long conversation with him the result of which is he is to be admitted to hospital in Sheffield on Monday 17th December for immediate treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He was quite positive, though obviously devastated and worried about his future - or lack of it. We managed to have a couple of laughs and he says he is going to take the words of some new "mucky" songs in with him to learn and thus relieve me of having to listen to his coal-mining repertoire. (My grandfather was a miner but my dad had the sense to get out. Neville has always pulled my leg about being an escapee.) I am sure you will all want to send Neville your best wishes and prayers if appropriate. We shall liaise with his wife and visit as soon as possible.
