Celebrating past heroes
RESIDENTS of Argyll and Bute are being asked to nominate historic Scottish figures they would like to see celebrated with a commemorative plaque by Historic Environment Scotland.
Those chosen will be remembered with a plaque, detailing their accomplishments, on a significant landmark that has a connection to the Scottish figure.
Martin Ross, Policy and Projects Manager for Historic Environment Scotland, said: ‘The plaque scheme is a wonderful way to recognise people who have made a difference to the world around us. Plaques have been made to recognise the contribution of famous poets, Arctic explorers, inventors, literary figures, artists, politicians, and drivers of social change.’
The closing date for completed submissions is January 31. An independent panel will consider all the nominations and select the successful applicants, which will be announced in spring 2016.
