I was asked by Justine Lorriman of the Royal Dyche pub in Burnley if I knew anything about football. I had just recently worked out that I had successfully avoided football for 64 years, so could answer a definite NO. She had to explain who Sean Dyche was and the source of his fame. There was the stump of a pine tree in the pub grounds and she would like a portrait of Sean carved on it. The pub had recently been renamed from “The Princess Royal” to the “Royal Dyche”. The work took 5.5 hours. To see pictures of the work in progress view my blog on this web site.
