Plaque found in Jaunty Park

Thank you to the S12 Community Facebook Page where a resident posted the photo’s of a plaque she and her daughter had found whilst out walking in Jaunty Park. The plaque was marking the planting of a tree by The Lady Mayoress 1975-1976. The resident was asking if anyone had any further information.

Councillors have been able to identify that Elsie and Albert Richardson were the Lord Mayor & Lady Mayoress in 1976. Albert was a councillor and they lived on Basegreen. At this time due to Covid19 we have only been able to uncover a copy of their installation photograph and a photograph of their Christmas Card for that year. Once we are able to return to the Town Hall we will investigate further and post more information as we discover it. Watch this website for further updates.
