Timothy Trow Day
Andy has also started to organise this year’s Timothy Trow Day, which will be held on Saturday 13 April at 11am by the memorial to this local hero on London Road. This year it is the 125th anniversary of Timothy’s death and the refurbishment of the memorial should be finished by then. Andy has helped to turn this into a real community event celebrating the area and last year it included poetry, song and story telling. We will announce further details of this year’s events closer to the time.
