The funeral of actor Richard Briers is to take place next Wednesday at a council run allotment in his home town of Kingston upon Thames.
Following a short service read by close friend Monty Don, the veteran actor who starred alongside Felicity Kendall as Tom Good in the BBC sitcom The Good Life will be laid to rest on a south facing compost heap along with a bucket of lug worms and some organic carrot tops.
Funeral directors have requested family flowers only, but if well-wishers happen to have any old cabbage leaves, unwanted teabags or potato peelings they’re desperate to get rid of, then please bring them along with you to the funeral on Wednesday morning.
Although Briers will best be remembered for his light comedic touch he was a versatile actor, once starring opposite Donald Pleasance in the 1962 horror film Night at the Circus in which he played one half of a demonic pantomime horse alongside childhood sweetheart Hattie Jacques.
