Malcom Pittock has contacted us regarding the ceremony to honour Bertie Lewis with a ground plaque in Victoria Square . As you are probably aware Bertie was a peace campaigner of long standing. He maintained a weekend presence in the square over many years and laid a wreath of white poppies at the war memorial every year during the Remembrance Sunday ceremony. The event will take place on the Costa Coffee side of the square on August 1st at 1.30-2.30 pm. Bertie's family will be in attendance, as will the mayor, representatives from CND and Bolton Stop the War. David Carusby and Yasmin Qureshi have also been invited. Hopefully members will represent Bolton Socialist Club as Bertie was himself a long standing member.
