Come along to Fiddler’s Green Day!

NSFHP started fundraising in earnest on 18 July 2016 at our Old Low Light Heritage Centre launch event with just £4,000 in the bank. Since then the North Shields Community, fishermen, local trusts and businesses have helped to raise £75,000 for our memorial to fishermen.

We would like to thank you all for your support of time, donations of items for us to sell/raffle/auction or by giving us your hard earned cash.

The event is on Sunday 24th September

11am – 12 noon – Live music from local musicians
12 noon               – Fishermens Parade
12:15pm              – Speeches
12:30pm              – Memorial unveiled
12:40pm              – Blessing of the Memorial
12:45pm              – Rendition of “Fiddler’s Green”
12:55pm              – Toast and thanks
1pm                      – Photographs & then back to a marquee outside the Old Low Light Heritage Centre
2:30pm               – Doors open for fundraiser by Hector Gannet starting at 3pm – entry £6 (**Now sold out**)

The memorial will be in place for about 150+ years – history in the making – history you helped to make – so come along and join us at the unveiling!

Make a note in your diaries – See you there!
