Trying one of the lock beams out for size!

Sadly Jean died in 2013 but she and John will live on in Blisworth's memory forever. Their family have now added a new commemorative plaque for both John and Jean to the balance beam. The Partnership were the recipients of money donated at Jean's funeral as well as a generous donation from family in America. This funded the paint for the mural in the tunnel hut and we are sure that John and Jean would have loved this project. The Partnership has planted 2 flowering Cherry trees between the hut and the tunnel portal in memory of John and Jean and NB Venus's memorable trip through the tunnel. The trees already look strong and sturdy and we'll nurture them carefully until they reward us with their glorious blossom each Spring. We'll soon be putting up a plaque in the hut telling John and Jean's story so that it kept alive for future generations and we'll also credit their wonderful contribution to the mural project.
