Dad was a wood man - he handled wood the way a jeweller might handle a precious gem or, a musician, a priceless instrument. Through his intelligent and dextrous hands he created bowls, toys, candle holders, furniture, instruments and boats. Read more »

I had no contact with Jack since he (and I) retired, which I regret. I remember him, before our retirements, as a kind and caring colleague, always ready to advise and help if asked. He was a great civilising influence in our workplace.

In 2014 Jack decided to dedicate all his work to supporting the Hospice. These were the "turning years". The success of the Christmas Market inspired him to prolific output. He gave everything he made to the Hospice including all his expenses. As he was so keen to say: "its just such a positive activity in every sense". He gave a lot but received in abundance; recognition, admiration, respect and love. Over 10,000 pounds donated in just over two years
So proud of you Dad.
