To Richard Feilden's memorial last Wednesday, an upbeat affair. Following a 'life-cycle', in which 300 cyclists clogged roads from Marble Arch to Embankment, the service at Inner Temple was good value.

Gathered in a vast tent, borrowed from singer Peter Gabriel, the crowd heard of Richard's life from his student days, when he led revolts in Cambridge, to his campaign to improve PFI schools' design.

More bizarre events were the office band, with Bill Gething on guitar, and staffers in naked suits imitating surveyors. Never let it be said that Richard set up an average practice.
