The Revd Cindy Kent writes: The obituary for the Revd Peter Liddelow (Gazette, 29 September) brought back memories. We had invited him to “perform” at a gig in All Saints’ Church Hall, London N20, at “An Evening With Premier Radio”; John Pantry was on keyboards and I was compèring and talking to local people about the station. Peter invited me to take part in a magic trick with him — a guillotine, which he demonstrated by cutting a cucumber in half. “Just put your hand in here,” he said, and — ouch! “How clever,” I thought. “He’s using red paint — oh no, it’s my blood!” He hadn’t put on the safety catch. Several hours later at Barnet General, after much hilarity that I was a “magician’s assistant” and loads of stitches, I was allowed home.
