The North Shields Fishermen’s Heritage Project is a community based project dedicated to creating a fitting and lasting memorial to fishermen who left the port of North Shields and lost their lives just doing their job.

The £75,000 needed was raised in 10 months!

On Sunday 24 September - the memorial will be revealed to the public - come and join us!
