A place for those who knew her to reminisce, and for those who didn't to find out a little about her

Hi folks
Just an update on the situation with Pip's bench. Am starting a new thread so we don't have to trawl through old replies.
Jo has been really great in doing all the groundwork on this for us and I'm very grateful for her help at what is continuing to be a busy time for me
I spoke to Mr Bench Man at Worthing Town Hall yesterday and am preparing a letter for him with our instructions for the bench.
The new brass plaque on Sox's bench is to read
In memory ofEve & Mike Pavitt (Pip & Sox)Forever in our thoughts
I have been advised that the approximate cost of the work will be £75 and have asked him to clarify the exact amount, together with letting us know when the work will be able to take place.
I am doing my best to arrange for the existing plaque to be sent to Sox's children.
Is there anything else we'd like to ask him before I send off the letter?

It looks as though you have everything in hand Salli.
Many thanks to both you and Jo for all the work you've done on this for Pip and for us.

Righty ... I am assuming now that we are happy with all this and I will go ahead and arrange it with Worthing Council.Will keep you posted as to what's happening.
Dawn, my thoughts were that the existing plaque should be sent to Sox's children, who have expressed an interest in having it. I think that's the most fitting place for it, since it commemorates their Dad.

Afternoon folks. Hope everyone is well.
Just to let you know that I've had a response from Worthing Council re the bench plaque.
They advise that the cost of the replacement plaque as detailed above will be £81.96 including installation and that work will be completed within 4 - 6 weeks. They will contact me again once it's been done and will send an invoice at that time.
That's all for now

Hi folks. A belated Happy New Year to you all and hope everyone here is well
Just to let you know, the new bench plaque has been installed as arranged

I think Pip would've liked it
I haven't received a bill as yet and will let you know when I do. Once that is settled, we must discuss what to do with outstanding funds which were donated

Hi folks. Hope everyone is well. Just to let you know I have settled the bill of £81.96 for the bench plaque from the Pressie Fund account. There is a balance of £119.52 which I think would be best used to cover future site running costs if this is agreeable to everyone who contributed?

Good idea Salli - will it last very long, I've no idea how expensive this site is to run.

Seconded. If you need further funds just let us know. I used to have a standing order set up and can do so again.
