Blue Plaque Unveiling

The Group unveiled a plaque that had been placed on one of our founders houses to commemorate his loss of life during World War One. Houses all over the North Shields and Tynemouth Area have had these plaques placed on them as a mark of respect to the men of the area that fell.


The Scouts had built a replica of the memorial that used to stand at one side of Billy Mill Roundabout, but now resides in Preston Cemetary as part of the District Duke of Wellington competition.


I am pleased to announce that we won the competition, which was very well deserved due to the hard work that was put into it.
