The gate in question is being installed at the footpath on Mr Hasberry's garden boundary and a commemorative plaque dedicated to Mr Hasberry's late wife Ann will be fitted shortly.

The plaque will read “In Memory of Ann Hasberry”

The installation took place as part of the Donate a Gate (DaG) Scheme, which aims to make footpaths across North Bucks more accessible for everyone by replacing stiles with gates.
