I was so saddened to hear of the death of my dear friend Bruce Kent. I met him first in 1981 when I presented him with the profit of that festival of £20,000. I had to persuade him that he should accept it and that we were reasonable, but “slightly crazy” people who supported CND wholeheartedly. He did, and from then on was always grateful for our support. He came to speak from the Pyramid Stage several times and inspired us all with his passionate oratory. He was the driving force of the campaign for nuclear disarmament and cannot be replaced. We will miss him forever.
