Petition to save local pub in Marylebone

Waitrose Marylebone - Ed Barton to leave for new post.

Ed Barton, Manager of Waitrose Marylebone High Street for many years, will be leaving us this month to open an exciting new project for Waitrose, not too far away. A warm-hearted, community-spirited man, Ed has always been a good friend to the Marylebone Association and other local organisations. He has helped us on many occasions - providing Waitrose vouchers each year to help us attract new members at the Fayre, stepping in with wine for our 80 guests when we had a venue but no refreshments for one of our early business members' events, etc. How he found time to think of others when he was always so busy was amazing.
