John Lennon’s Sgt Pepper Gypsy Caravan to be restored
A spectacular gypsy caravan belonging to John Lennon is to be restored after finding its way into the hands of a charity.
The caravan, much like John’s famous Rolls Royce, was painted with the motif of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, although unlike the car, it went missing and was thought to have been lost forever.
In 2012 it was found and it has since been handed over to The Delight Makers, a charity which aims to restore it to its former glory.
Sam Koshare-Edouardes, 54, chairman of the charity, said once it has been restored they want to take it around the country to spread John’s message of love and peace.
But before then it has to be restored piece by piece, a painstaking task, which is being undertaken by Sam’s partner.
“We’re calling out to Beatles fans, and the people of the Chertsey and Weybridge area to see if anybody remembers the day when this spectacular gypsy showman’s caravan made it’s journey to the home of John Lennon, Kenwood in St George’s Hill.”Sam Koshare-Edouardes, The Delight Makers Foundation
