Tim Anderson – A musical tribute – Sunday 20th November 2022

supplied by Sarah Harvey

Sarah Harvey… Tim Anderson was a well-known local personality who sadly passed away during August after a very short illness. He loved his music and could be seen attending many live local music events. Many will know him from his amazing work stage managing alongside Pete Prescott at Beatles Day. This is an afternoon serving as a musical tribute and celebration of Tim’s life. His wish was that all proceeds should go to St.Michael’ Hospice and we have three amazing acts for you, ‘Stormy-T and Bluesman’s Lane’, ‘Four Teas And A Sugar’, and Pete Prescott. This will take place upstairs at Rocksalt in Hastings and entry is by a suggested donation of £5, but please donate whatever you can afford. Hope you can come and enjoy with us what will be an amazing celebration for Tim. We are sure that he will be watching from wherever he is.❤️❤️

Tim Anderson R.I.P.

Alan Esdaile… Very sad news. Many people will remember Tim from Beatles Day. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Clive Garrard… What very sad news. A lovely guy and I feel sad for his daughter and his family at the terrible news. I always thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Tim at Beatles day every year such a sad loss

Liane Carroll… So very sad to hear about Tim’s passing. Roger and I are sending love to Jo and his family 💔

Pauline Richards… He was a nice friendly fella

Pete Prescott… A lovely guy. So so sad. He was so happy with Jo and loved life. He was fantastic at Beatles Day.I saw him last week and we laughed at how we clashed on the first Beatles Day he did at the White Rock (We soon got over that !) He was fantastic and worked at it all day. A tall good looking dapper guy (he always looked cool in waistcoats and jackets). I’ll always think of him running backstage with a clipboard looking for people. At my last Beatles Day it was Tim who organised the whip round to send us on holiday. That’s the sort of guy he was. Condolences to Jo and the family. Xxx

Graham How… Tim got married to Jo, the love of his life on Friday. It was a lovely ceremony with his family and close friends. On Sunday, his favourite band Stormy T and the Bluesman’s Lane streamed their gig to his bedside from Rocksalt in Bexhill and he loved it. He will be missed.

Andy Gunton… Very sad news. As Pete has said, Tim was great at Beatles Day. Without his help the main stage would never have run as smoothly as it did. Tim was one of the behind the scenes heroes on the day, making sure all acts were where they should be, when they should be. Not an easy task believe me, a bit like herding cats at times. He was also the person responsible for me ending up drumming with The Rockitmen at Beatles Day. A lovely guy who will be very sadly missed

Robert Searle… RIP

Sarah Harvey… Tim said to me a few years ago that I was probably his longest-serving friend. I am so so proud that he believed that to be so. We spent many years as close friends, pursuing our radio and TVDX hobby as well as other activities, before we somehow lost touch for a time, only to be re-united some years ago when he delivered a skip to my house. I will so miss his warmth and support. A truly gorgeous fella’. God bless Tim. Sending love to you wherever you are 💜 xxx

Sandra Francis… Sad news. Another good one gone. They just don’t make them like that anymore. Sandy

Jacquie Hinves… Oh no. A superb selfless man. Another legend gone this year. Very sad news.

Rick Pentecost… A lovely man. This is so very sad.

Susie Prescott… So very sad to read this. I had no idea Tim was ill. Thoughts are with his family & especially his Daughter. RIP Tim ❤️

Tony Davis… RIP Tim

Wendy McGee… Rip peace Tim could not believe the news that you has passed, many condolences to Jo so very sorry much love xxxx❤️❤️

Johnny Francis… to a very dear friend who will be sadly missed love to Jo xx

Chris Jolly… I’m sorry to read this sad news. I never knew Tim but from reading these comments it’s very clear he was obviously a very special well liked, and respected friend to so many. He sounds like an all round good egg as they say…
