Inscription

{Plaque on bench:}
In memory of the man, the myth, the legend.
Dr the Rik Mayall.
Pan global phenomenon.
Equality, opportunity, wisdom, freedom & love.
"Barbara: love is the answer"

The wording of the plaque is a group effort. 'The man, the myth the legend was suggested by his daughter Bonnie. 'Pan global phenomenon' was used by Mayall to describe himself.
He was awarded an honorary doctorate by Exeter University and 'Equality, opportunity, wisdom, freedom & love', ( the five mantras of his life) were part of his acceptance speech.  'Barbara: love is the answer' was something he often said to his wife.
