Memorial Plaque for Glen Street Bombing 1921
Posted by trish on August 20, 2021, 9:39:12
Good morning all. As you will have previously read on here, Michael Lynch wanted to do something to commemorate the 80th anniversary of that fateful time. Well to cut a very long story short and after a lot of winds and turns, the final product is here. These are the arrangements. On October 21st at 11.30 am the unveiling of the lovely plaque will take place outside Hebburn Iona Club. The committee agreed to let this be fixed to the front wall outside the club for which we are extremely grateful. After a bit research we have managed to locate a lady called Betty Forster who has agreed to do the unveiling. The request was put on Colin McFadyen's FB site Pictorial Hebburn to find living relatives of those who lost their lives that day. A few replied but only Betty confirmed that she would be honoured to do it. Please put this date in your diaries to come along and make it a special occasion. If you have any further information please let Michael, Norman or myself know. Thank you.
