Hi Mick Wink I've been away for 5 days, YES YOUR RIGHT Laughing with Shearings again so only just seen your post,

As you know I knew JJ for many years this is a photo I took in 1984 of him at one of the 1000 bowling handicaps he sponsored on behalf of Servowarm for a few years

Dougie Ive been to his grave today.

If you ever want to visit it, go down the main drive of Gidlow cemetery and turn right just after the place where the cremated people are put and Jack will be on the left as you go down the slope.

I've had time this morning to look through your videos of his allotment,
it'll be interesting to see if his helpers keep up the project he started from scratch,
I've always said your video's are for the future and you've made a first class job of them in memory of JJ
or Mr S (Servowarm) from the good times at the club like the time he was demonstrating the art of fly fishing
on the bowling green

I remember going to see him as a friend a day or so after he had plowed the beds for the first time, a nice man JJ I knew him in two different lights Wink

Dougie Could you not spare the time to go down to Gidlow and visit his grave in person, ? but I suppose looking at a few videos is better than nothing.

Thanks for the compliments saying I do a first class job in making my videos,

I have sent a photo of some of the flowers and a photo that have been placed on the grave to Photo a Day so we will have to see if it gets chosen by the admin.
BTW do you know of any more old people who are on there last legs for videoing

I'll say my last farewell one day Mick, I would have been at his funeral if I had been home but as I've already said Shearings called
it's the third 5 day break this year you can't beat their prices plus they give you free drinks all week.

Still a Premier Inn for this month to Coventry also booked the train for the first time as it was only 14 each return Surprised so we'll give it a try

Weve just had a 7 day break in Suffolk we stayed in a cottage on Strawberry hall farm and drove to all the lovely posh villages.

You can see the cottage on this video.

MicK, I was at a funeral to-day in Gidlow Graveyard so I found his grave and paid my respects to a friend that I knew for longer than most on WW.
