'And there's something lovely to add. I'm now writing on 11th May 2016. There was a seat with two plaques side by side, commemorating the lives of Kenneth Whillock and his wife Maraki, whose name had been Maraki Grimshaw before.
KENNETH WILLIAM WHILLOCK
In ever loving memory of my darling husband
He loved Padstow and its views, serving as
a police officer in this area in the 1950's
Born in Lincoln in 1925. Died 24.12.93 aged 68
Our thoughts and love are always with you
Your loving wife Maraki and family
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
(formerly GRIMSHAW nee DIAMANTAKI)
BORN IN SYROS, GREECE 1926 DIED 01/03/2012
OUR THOUGHTS AND LOVE ARE ALWAYS WITH YOU
YOUR LOVING FAMILY
Her son Nick got in touch to supply further information - and a picture, which I feel might have been taken around 1990. Here is that picture:
And this is what Nick has said about the seat:
My late parents who loved Padstow, the views and seats that you so eloquently describe in your blog wanted to contribute to the area on their demise. Thankfully Padstow Council allowed my family to have their bench install and many family and friends have travel from all over the UK to sit on it since their parting.
I have selected an image that I think best shows them enjoying the Padstow's views and we do hope that you find it suitable for your blog.
I think the picture has been very well-chosen indeed, and reveals much about the couple and their shared love of Padstow.
It isn't often that a total stranger contributes so much to a post of mine. My warm thanks to him and his family.'
I don't think there's anything I need add. I am really chuffed to bits. I wonder if anyone else will get in touch, and add something to the words on another seat plaque?
