Come along to Fiddler’s Green Day!

NSFHP started fundraising in earnest on 18 July 2016 at our Old Low Light Heritage Centre launch event with just £4,000 in the bank. Since then the North Shields Community, fishermen, local trusts and businesses have helped to raise £75,000 for our memorial to fishermen.

We would like to thank you all for your support of time, donations of items for us to sell/raffle/auction or by giving us your hard earned cash.

The memorial will be in place for about 150+ years – history in the making – history you helped to make – so please come along and join us at the unveiling!
