In Martin Kemp’s wonderful film “The Magic of Manning’s Pit” Chris Bulpett talks about the fields containing memories of those who are no longer with us. Many of those who have contacted us during our two and a half year (so far) campaign have talked about parents or family members who had loved Manning’s Pit while they were alive. They often say as well how much being in Manning’s Pit has helped their grieving process.
As Chris mentioned after the showing of the film at our Party, Jane Hare, who appeared in the film (talking about the osprey), died suddenly, not long after its first showing. She is still greatly missed. Lance Housley, who had also been a very good supporter of our campaign, died a few days before the party, and we have put a tribute to him on the website.
