The 27th June saw the passing of MR Michael Bond, creator of Marmalade loving Paddington Bear from Peru.
Published first as a children’s book in 1958, Mr bond died in his home after a recent illness. Karen Jankel mentioned that the whole world would have been lucky to have a father like him “whose legacy will live on”.
Stephen Fry tweeted: “So sorry to hear that Michael Bond has departed. He was as kindly, dignified, charming & lovable as the immortal Paddington Bear he gave us.”
IClimate were fortunate enough to complete the fit out of a climate control air conditioning system in the newly refurbished store at Paddington Station. The works took a little over 2 weeks to complete ensuring a comfortable environment when shopping for Mr Bear to take home.
Paddington Bear is part of a lot of childhood memories and we were pleased to be able to complete this project to a very high standard. I am sure both Mr Bond and Paddington appreciated the air conditioning installation that took place.
