New Plaque honours Bob Pelham on his 100th birthday

the-plaqueNew commemorative plaque unveiled to honour Bob Pelham

On Thursday, 28 February a special commemorative event took place to honour Bob Pelham, founder of Pelham Puppets. Our Town Mayor, Cllr. Lisa Farrell and Astrid and Sue Pelham, Bob Pelham's neices, unveiled a plaque on the curved building in Kingsbury Street, close to the Town Hall. The date coincided with a very special day, as it would have been Bob's 100th birthday.

A few of Bob's original creations - including the now nearly 90-year-old Muffin the Mule - came back to Marlborough for the occasion. Click here for more details and photos
