I understand that the Baco family have heard nothing about the plaque in honour of Teki for seven months.  Does anyone have any information please?

Thank you Moyra.  Seems strange that there was so much impetus and then silence.  Enjoy your holiday.  Annie

Its looking very much like it was a con. Would be a shame if it was because it was a great idea and the plaque design was fab.

Somebody has commented on a similar threat on trip advisor. This is what they've put (I've just copied and pasted).

https://www.facebook.com/violinmancorfu…

"It has been a long time since the the plaque design was made, we had attempted and approached many companies, to which many said no to the final design we picked, a few companies accepted, and there designs came back not as described, it has been a long long process trying to find someone who can do the plaque, its becoming very pricey having it done. We have one last company who will be attempting the plaque, to which if this fails, the money raised for the plaque will be passed over to direct family for them to use at there choice. Emailing companies back and forth has become very stressing, we will update everyone on the plaque within the next few weeks. Just an update."

Pretty sad to be honest hope it gets made!

After a flurry of activity and questions yesterday, there was an update posted on the FB page RIP Violin Man, Sidari, as above. Doesn't look to me as if it's going to be made - I hope I'm wrong.   Moyra

The update was from the man who set up the Facebook page. I'm still a bit dubious as to whether it will get done.
