  • Crispin Ellison


    Crispin Ellison, a very valued member of Hatchery Writers, passed away on Friday 30 August 2019.

    Crispin inspired all who knew him with his dedication, stoicism and constant cheerful presence. He will be much missed by all of us. On behalf of Hatchery Writers, flowers and a card were sent to his widow, Ilana Richardson.

    Read Crispin’s short piece ‘Never Judge a Book by its Cover’ on our Members Musings Page:

    For those who knew and admired Crispin, there is a video of the very moving memorial event that was held on 20 September at Hollingbury Golf Park:

    On 19 October, Harmony Choir gave a concert in Crispin’s memory at Portslade United Reformed Church, Boundary Rd, Hove.
