A friend of pop­u­lar Scar­bor­ough man Nick Earn­shaw is fundrais­ing to have a seat ded­i­cated to him and his achieve­ments.

A friend of pop­u­lar Scar­bor­ough man Nick Earn­shaw has de­cided to raise money to “re­mem­ber Nicky and his work” . Mag­gie Short, a friend of Nick and his fam­ily, would like to have a seat placed op­po­site South Cliff Post Of­fice ded­i­cated to Nick and his achieve­ments.

Ear­lier this year tributes were paid to Nick, who passed away on April 22, aged 46. He was well known for a cam­paign he launched in 1998 to have a cross­ing in­stalled on Fi­ley Road, at the junc­tion with West­bourne Grove and Prince of Wales Ter­race. Af­ter five years of de­ter­mi­na­tion, 10,000 sig­na­tures and the back­ing of MP David Blun­kett, his dream be­came a re­al­ity.

Mag­gie said: “Nicky was a re­mark­able young man, stub­born and de­ter­mined but loved and ad­mired by all who knew him. With the help of fam­ily and friends we would like to have a seat ded­i­cated to him. We need to raise £1,500 and hope to have reached this tar­get by the an­niver­sary of Nicky’s death next year.”

Funds can be do­nated at the Skip­ton Build­ing So­ci­ety with ref­er­ence ‘Nicky’s seat’.
