Each year since 2003 local people have been voting for the people, events and places they have felt worthy of a blue plaque.
The scheme came about after the ‘News’ approached English Heritage to get more of our history recognised, only to be told that most of our buildings would not qualify as they were destroyed in the blitz and post war era. Working in partnership with Southwark Heritage Association and Southwark Council, over 40 of our own blue plaques have been erected.
The voting list for this year is now open. To nominate email firstname.lastname@example.org with your nomination as the subject. Or send us the following to Southwark News, Unit A302, Tower Bridge Business Complex, Clement’s Road, London, SE16 4DG:
