Bench to Downley Common
On Thursday July 30th I delivered and installed a bench to Downley, High Wycombe in memory of a very accomplished wood carver. I met his widow and daughter. The following is an extract from a letter we received a few days ago.
As a family we would like you to know how pleased we are with your handiwork. As Normanâ€™s wife I am thrilled with the bench. It moved me to tears seeing his name carved so beautifully â€“ just as he would have done, perfectly. We have all been photographed on it and by it and the people in the village were using it that afternoon and drinking cups of tea. I feel we have done him proud, thank you so much.
