In loving memory of second Burton tribute

Second Burton Tribute, known fondly by its loved ones as “woah look at what somebody put there,” passed away early last Wednesday morning, Jan. 18, 2023.  Born to the second-floor landing of the central staircase in Burton, the display came from humble beginnings.
