A lasting tribute to Dwight Beare

Thursday 15th September 2016 | Developments | Cronk Cullyn, Colby

A memorial bench and new play park named in the honour of late Australian sidecar racer Dwight Beare have been unveiled at Cronk Cullyn, Colby.

27-year-old Dwight, who lived on the Isle of Man and was a joiner by trade, lost his life while competing in this year’s TT races.

Dwight’s mother Robyn Stewart and his partner Tash Beare were joined by other family members, racing sponsors, friends and colleagues to formally declare ‘Dwight’s Park’ open to the public.

A group of tradesmen who worked alongside Dwight on Hartford Homes’ Cronk Cullyn development in Colby wished to pay a lasting tribute to their workmate by installing a memorial bench on site.

Hartford was able to go further by naming the entire play area at the centre of the development after him, with the consent of Arbory Commissioners.

Dwight’s Park and bench are at the heart of the Cronk Cullyn estate, surrounded by the houses he helped to build.
