Update: 15 October 2016 – The vote has now closed.

We have a winning design!

The North Shields Fishermen’s Heritage Project wants to commission a fitting memorial to all those who have lost their lives from the Town. It’s important therefore that we get the views and opinions of our local community, as the final piece will be in place for many years to come, providing a place for reflection and attracting people to the Fish Quay to see it.

So, we have asked a number of sculptors, some of whom are local, to submit their initial impressions of what the memorial might be, and we’d love to know which one you like the most. The final design will be one and a half times life size – so a leap of imagination is required to visualise what it will eventually look like once it’s in place.

For those who have already voted, all of the designs can still be viewed on our memorial design gallery.

If you would like to help us achieve our goal – please visit our donate page – and give whatever you can, we appreciate your support.
