John Wood

It is with great regret that we announce the passing of John Wood.

Many of you will know John who was one of the very first moorers to take up a berth at Overwater Marina with his Narrowboat 'Frith's Piece'. John was a true gentleman in all contexts of the meaning with an open and generous nature.

For many years, John contributed to the running of the Marina, looking after the hanging baskets, raised beds and planters to bring colour to Marina's buildings.

John's last task was to create a mini orchard with fruit trees just inside the entrance of the driveway to the reception as John's Place. We will extend the orchard over time and we hope it will be fitting and lasting tribute to his kind and gentle nature.
