Simon's expert knowledge of all things London has been an invaluable resource - both for my students and for my own research. Whether it's Drury Lane or Dulwich, Simon is able to paint a dynamic and entertaining history of the capital that appeals to locals and visitors alike.

SILVER CANE WALKS I was a local resident and active in Hammersmith for over 30 years, when out of curiosity, I joined a 'Simon Rodway Guided Walk' along the river path. His detailed knowledge of this borough's history, accompanied by his good humour and attentiveness, provided a delight, that I have since encouraged neighbours, friends and family to join him on one of his walks. Chris Tranchell (Hammersmith)

In February 2011, said about Silver Cane Tours

I went on one of Simon's non LBHF's walks on Sunday (which as usual was fascinating) and asked him whether he and his fellow guides would be doing any more walks for Hammersmith and Fulham this year. He said that nothing had yet been decided. I am happy to write to whoever would be making the decision about the walks programme and say how much I enjoyed them! I think I must have been on almost all the walks; the artists of Barons Court; black history in the borough; the Shepherds Bush walks about the Olympics of 1908 - the film and television industry - Middle Eastern food; Ravenscourt Park and the Polish community; the history of Walham Green; the Lots Road auction rooms; Second World War walk etc etc. They have all been exceptional. (In fact I went on one of Holborn's free walks a couple of months ago and was very disappointed. The guide was mediocre - nowhere near as good as the guides on LBFH walks!) I have been resident in the borough for over 25 yrs and the walks series has taught me so much about where I live. The walks are always very well researched, entertaining, and appeal to a wide range of people. I think the modest amount of money spent on the free walks programme is an excellent way of using Council Tax payers' money. It brings people into the borough who might not otherwise visit and they do spend money whilst they are there. Since the Ravenscourt Park walk when the participants were given a free cake in the cafe of the Polish Centre I often go into the cafe to buy a piece of the delicious cooked cheese cake which I would not have done had I not come across the cafe on the LBHF walk......... I do hope that the walks will continue to take place as they are a wonderful community amenity. Sue Tuck Fulham
