I went for a walk along the North Tyneside coast today. More pictures will follow, but I thought I’d share this one straight away. It’s quite a common thing for people to sponsor a bench in a park, or other public place in memory of a loved one. It’s a nice thing to do, and it can be quite interesting, coming along years later and wondering who some of the people were. Every sponsored bench has a small plaque with some brief message, usually along the lines of “In memory of….”. But this one was different.
And for anyone who doesn’t get it, some reading is called for. Or you could start with a sample.
 Just as soon as I’ve finished the ones from York on Monday and Durham on Wednesday, anyway.
