John Severn (John A Severn)

I had never heard of Nottingham man John Severn, a man for whom conservation was something of a passion,  until last week, when I came across his obituary  in the course of my work.

I always have a soft spot for life`s enthusiasts, and I was interested to learn of his project with local charity Family First, utilising the abilities of the unemployed to restore buildings in the grounds of Wollaton Hall.

In case others also find his life and work interesting, here is said obituary ;
