THE family of popular March publican Mick Smith who died suddenly have asked mourners at his funeral not to dress in black and not to take flowers to the church.

Instead they hope regulars attending the funeral next Friday at 10am at St Peter's Church, March, will give a donation to MAGPAS, the medical charity which provides emergency roadside relief .

Mr Smith, 58, was landlord of the Acre for many years pub but was taken ill on Friday and rushed to Peterborough District Hospital where he later died.

He was described by friends this week as very much a family man who enjoyed spending time with his wife Patricia, known as Trish, as well as brother Raymond, daughter Nicola German and son in law Richard German.
