Plaque Installation

Sir.

Delighted to report that our historic Plaque from 1907 was replaced within feet of its original position on the Undercliff Drive, its history is such that in 1907 then members had the great vision securing hard work to create the present Undercliff drive, much of the work then by hand, those members included names on the plaque as Russell Cotes, John Elmes Beale.

Russell Cotes was the champion for the construction of the Undercliff drive. So now 108 years on the plaque celebrating the opening IS BACK IN ITS RIGHTLFUL PLACE, myself watch the work of the workman on site carefully placed the stonework / plaque back into position, my disappointment was no one from the council even bother to attend to see the historic event.

Councillor Ron Whittaker,
Throop / Muscliff Ward
