Brunswick Church Hall, Newcastle: Clean Air, a Public Meeting

November 24 @ 19:00 - 20:30

From Sandy Irvine

I am writing to let you know about an important public meeting to be held in central Newcastle at 19.00 in Brunswick Church Hall on Thursday November 24th. It will be of real interest to anyone involved in local history.

The topic is the story of a successful campaign led by a remarkable local woman, Jennie Shearan, in the fight for clean air. It was an inspiring victory won against the odds, a struggle based on rallying the local community in Hebburn against one of the worst polluters in the region, Monkton Coke Works. It is a story that has many positive lessons for today. We certainly need success stories in these dark days!
