Simon launches his new community initiative

9th October

We recently reported on the retirement from Waitrose of Simon Hudson, a hugely popular character – the community’s fondness was borne out in the huge engagement our Facebook post generated reaching over 30,000 people with over 500 people wishing him all the best for the future. Simon thanked every single one of the wellwishers.

What next for Simon?

True to his word he is now launching his new volunteer shopping service SIMON SHOPPING FOR YOU. Anyone in need of some shopping or item collection can contact him to make use of his free service. When we spoke to Simon he was keen to make sure he continues to be involved in the community and this is just the way to ensure he does that!

You can contact him either via messenger, by phone at 01435 813549 (landline) 07952 935517 (mobile) or by email at
