News Cuttings

This page contains various articles relating to the Plaque's subjects.

Many of the articles are from the Harrogate Advertiser, often (for the older ones) from the "Bygone Harrogate" series by local historian Malcom Neesam.

Other cuttings are of when the Harrogate Advertiser has reported on the unveiling of a plaque.

Much of this material was collected by Peter J. Fargher and donated to the Harrogate Civic Society.

The later items (Plaque 74 onwards and articles after 2017) have been collected by Chris Dicken.
