WHAT'S NEW! LONDON TRANSPORT WIDGET WHAT'S NEW!

As Legal Guardians of Marc Bolan's Rock Shrine, as well as having a duty and responsibility to care for the shrine itself, we also like to help people to find it!

On the left is a widget which you can use to find out the route from any Post Code, main-line or tube station in London.
If you use a Post Code it will even tell you how long it will take you to walk to the station.
The 'results' will also tell you of planned engineering work (usually at weekends) and pick the best route for you.
There are Advanced Options, so you can select a day in the future to travel, or to pick different types of route, such as those with the least changes.

WELCOME TO THE LATEST UPDATE
Sorry, we still can't tell you what the news is that is in the pipe-line, so our lips have to remain sealed for a bit longer.
So, on with the update ...

MARC'S SHRINE NEW PHOTO GALLERY
We visited Marc's Shrine on the 24th February 2014. You can view a large photo gallery Here. As you can see, many of the tributes, especially those on The Tree were covered in splattered mud from the record-breaking Rain we have had since late December, 2013. The later images show the tributes ince we had cleaned as much mud as possible off them. The cigarette was obviously very recent because it hadn't got wet or the tobacco would have discoloured the cigarette paper. Several of the tributes are now a home for mould fungus, most likey to be Aspergillus because even though the paper tribute was in a clear plastic wallet, water had got in, thus giving them the perfect envirohment, becuase the sun shining on the plastic acts like a mini-greenhouse giving Aspergillus the perfect growing media of warm, damp with nutrients (the paper).
SHOCKING DISCOVERY
We discovered some recent activity at the site which we have covered in our New March 2014 Newsletter. There will be more on this when we have been able to assess the situation and what to do.
ONCE AGAIN - TAG can assure everyone that we never remove tributes except when the paper is so faded/washed out/bleached/eaten by bugs that it cannot be read at all. The same is true of flowers. They are left until they are dead, and faded and have deteriorated to the point they are detremental to the look of the site. We have no idea why some tributes remain for year-on-year and others go missing in days!

  

MARC'S SHRINE VIDEOS
We have not had time to add these two videos to our own player yet, but they are available on You Tube and also via out Face Book page.
VIDEO 1) ON YOU TUBE
VIDEO 2) ON YOU TUBE
Please note: The commentary about the Tree damage (Video Two) is by my wife Fee and is somewhat emotional, as I am sure you will be able to image when you watch Video 2.

LAST CHANCE TO BUY YOUR MARC BOLAN ROSE BUSHES THIS YEAR
As you will have seen in a previous Newsletter the Rose Bushes are being delivered to people who have ordered them and have beautiful green stems and already have buds. Cockers have done a wonderful job, but then as they are "By Appointment to HRH Queen Elizabeth II" they would be wouldn't they? So if you haven't bought your Rose Bushes, buy them now to see them bloom in the Summer of 2014. Ours are in the Green House and one is starting to go into bud already!
ORDER YOUR ROSE BUSHES HERE (The page will open in a new window/tab)

DEADLINE FOR ORDERING IS FRIDAY 11th APRIL - NO EXCEPTIONS

THAT'S ALL FOR THIS UPDATE
The next update will be with you as soon as possible, but the amount of time we can spent on the forthcoming Members update is directly related to the amount of time we have to spend at Marc's Shrine. Due to the devastating finds of the end of February, we may well be in London for several visits in the next three to four weeks. This will limit the general updates as we will obviously be focussing on doing what we can to SAVE THE BOLAN TREE, for the second time in the 15 years since TAG was formed.
