It is with great sadness that we report the death of Michael (Mike) Maybury, at the age of 81 in his Portsmouth home.
Mike leaves behind a towering legacy of determination, success and single-mindedness.
He refused to do National Service, campaigned for peace, people and vegetarianism throughout his life and at one point owned nine health food shops around the region.
Mike was an integral part of the Portsmouth vegetarian and vegan movement and it was because of him that Viva! took our hugely successful Roadshow to the city in 2015. It was opened by Mike who, as usual, attracted the local media along with him.
The world would be a far better place with many more Mike Mayburys in it!
