Just heard the sad news of Robin.Condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. Carrot.
Very very sad news indeed.My condolences to his family and friends.He will be sadly missed by all of us.
Can't believe hearing this extremely sad news. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones. I lost a good friend some time ago and the following poem springs to mind:
A Parable of Immortality
I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength,
and I stand and watch until at last she hangs
like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says,
" There she goes! "
Gone from my sight . . . that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear her load of living freight
to the place of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment
when someone at my side says,
" There she goes! "
there are other eyes watching her coming . . .
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout . . .
" Here she comes! "
God bless you Robin

Robin was a real gentleman. Such a nice guy, always great with our kids, he remembered them each year at Hexwood.
Sincere condolences to his family.
Spare a thought for Geoffrey too, he will take this news hard. That's Neil, Bud and now Robin who have alas, left us.
Thanks for some great memories Robin, never forgotten.
What a great loss Robin's passing is to so many people.
At last year's Hexwood, I met the man that made my childhood world a better world. And what a wonderful person he was; so charming and obliging to all; so happy to continuously leap out of his seat to pose for photos!
He will be so sadly missed but will live in our memories forever as the best friend Catweazle could ever have wished to have found.
Words cannot express how I feel today and my heart and condolences go out to Venetia and the children on their loss
I waited 39 years to meet Robin and I was not disappointed when I did. As Debbie said, he was part of our childhood and the times I met him at Hexwood were extremely happy ones.
He was devoted to the club and we were very privileged to be a part of it all especially being able to watch The Tellingbone with him and Geoffrey last year in the place it was originally filmed.
We will remember him always with very great affection and we will miss him terribly.
Our loss is the Angels gain and no matter how much we say 'Will you come back one day?' it is painful to know he won't but will always be with us in our hearts and in spirit.
Alas tragic news. We only met him for the first time at last year's wonderful gathering and he was so charming and delightful, just like the grown up Carrot in the Catweazle sequel we all imagine. We both enjoyed the Catweazale on sale there and he signed my bottle which I treasure. Robin, Blessed Be! Go into the wider magick in peace. Love to his family.
We are all so very sad to hear this distressing news. Robin was a significant part of some of my most joyous childhood memories - and my husband, and our own children's also. It was a privilege to meet such a gentle, charming, talented man. Robin will remain evermore in our fondest memories. Our deepest condolences to Venetia and the children.
This is a very very sad moment, my condolences go out to Venetia and the children, Robin was a great man and it was a real pleasure to have met him,I will keep the memories of watching the Tellingbone at last years Hexwood in my heart, God Bless you Robin.
I've just seen the newsletter and I'm so very sad to hear the awful news. I can only echo what others have said in tribute to Robin, and my heart goes out to you and the children, Venetia. Robin will always be in our hearts, so we will never really lose him. What a lovely man - I feel so privileged to have met and talked to him.
God bless you, dear Robin.

Deepest condolences to Robins family from two german Catweazle fans. Read the sad news the other night. Memories came back at once when Robin at last years Hexwood poses for photo with my daughter. The photo hangs on the wall beside her bed and will be a treasured memorabilia of hers for ever.

We met Robin last year for the first time at Hexwood.
He will always be in our hearts.
Life is so unfair, loved ones are taken away all too often when they have still so much to give in life to others,
our loss is heavens gain.

Such sad news..having had the pleasure of spending time with Robin on each of his visits to Hexwood,it was really pleasing for him to see how much the fans adored him and took him to our hearts.From the 1st visit when he was somewhat shy and nervous as to how he would be received, to looking forward with so much enthusiasm to the following fetes where he now knew that he would be very comfortable in his surroundings,so much so that he brought his wonderful wife Venetia along.
Robin,You will be sadly missed.RIP
Love and best wishes to Venitia and the family
Fondest Regards...Ian & Elaine

That was a lovely poem you quoted Jeff and Cathy, and it just reminded me of one which has helped me at such times. It's called "The Rose Beyond The Wall" - irrespective of religious beliefs (or lack of them) it's something positive to think on.
A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And, as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall ...
One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide -
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side ...
Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted - the rose blooms there -
Its beauty even greater now,
nurtured by God's own loving care.
Just thought I'd like to share it - especially with you and the family, Venetia.
God bless and much love.

This news on Monday really hit me hard ...
had the pleasure to talk to Robin twice at two Hexwood fetes and he seemed to me a very kind, down-to-earth and loveable man ...
last summer at the 40th anniversary he sat beside me watching the telling bone episode and told me he likes writing books for children ...
one of his last movie performances was named "One Foot In The Grave"...
... Geoffrey now is the sole survivor of the main cast of the first series ... but in our hearts all of them will live on forever ....
My love, condolence and all good wishes go to Venetia and her family .... a very hard time for them... but after all we knew death for him came as a release, this is the only little consolation ...
we will never forget you, dear Robin !
You are part of us and will always be with us !
Such very sad news.
My deepest and sincere condolences to Robin's family and friends.
Thank you Robin for the joy and memories you gave us!
You will be sadly missed but will live in our memories forever!
His Journey's Just Begun
Don't think of Him as gone away -
His journey has just begun
Life holds many facets
The Earth is only one
Just think of Him as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how He must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of Him as living
In the hearts of those He touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And He was loved so much.
May I just offer my condolences to Robin's family. I met him once, at the signing of the Catweazle videos, about 1997 I think, and he was great. Thank you Robin for your part in the magic that has lasted all these years. Rest in peace.

Such very sad news....it was a great pleasure to meet Robin at the last 3 Fetes....he was always so bright, enthusiatic and patient with us all....He was an important part of my childhood and will never be forgotten.....My thoughts go out to Venetia and his family at this difficult time.
Just to add my voice to everyone else here who are all so saddened by the news of Robin's passing. I can't believe he has gone, I spoke to him at length only last June at Hexwood and he seemed so fit and healthy. I recall how he felt it a little surreal that, as Geoffrey had said 2009 was his last Hexwood, he would be the elder statesman for the show at 2010's gathering. Robin was so generous with his time with me, I can say no more other than what a lovely, lovely man he was, he shall be missed. My sincerest condolences go out to his family. RIP Carrot
I heard from the tragic death of Robin and as we all, I'm very sad about that. As I never met him personally, I only know him as the boy "Carrot" (in Germany: "Harold") - and I'll keep him in my heart like that.
I take a little comfort in the fact that even if he's gone away from us, in the Catweazle episodes, he will still be alive forever. So, television can give a little bit of immortality to us at least - and this is magic.
