REDDITCH residents will get the chance to say goodbye to one of the town’s most colourful characters next week.

Richard Wiseman, best known for singing a number of popular songs in the town centre, passed away at the Alexandra Hospital on January 5.

For years the Church Hill resident spent his days entertaining shoppers around Church Green and in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.

His funeral, open to members of the public, will take place next Wednesday, January 23 at 9.30am at Redditch Crematorium.

Following a number of tributes the Wiseman family said that anyone wishing to come along will be welcome.

Last Saturday a number of people gathered in Church Green to pay their respects to Mr Wiseman.

There is also a book of condolence at the information point in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre and talks are under way for a plaque to be made in his memory.
