It is with great sadness that we learn of the death, on Maundy Thursday, of Leicestershire dealer Martin Hewitt, stalwart of the "fair" scene and known to many after years in the trade. Martin was taken ill at the Harrogate show and admitted to hospital there, although he was later transferred back to Leicester he sadly never made it out of hospital.
His mother, who used to "stall out" with him at London, Birmingham, Harrogate et al predeceased him by only a few weeks. They will both be missed by collectors and dealers alike. We'll let you know more details as we have them.
