Speaker: Gordon Young | Weekly Club Meeting
3 March 2021 – Gordon Young of the Bristol Civic Society will tell us about the Bristol Blue Plaque Initiative. Visit their website here: https://www.bristolcivicsociety.org.uk
“Blue Plaques” commemorate individuals who lived or worked at a specific location with a blue-coloured wall plaque giving some basic information about them and stating their connection with the site. They can also honour organisations which have made a collective, rather than an individual, contribution.
Plaques can also provide a sense of recognition and inclusion, appeal to people of all ages and from all backgrounds and add character and pride to a neighbourhood.
