This fine World War 2 memorial to The Gateway School is being re-erected in The Newarke Houses Museum having featured in the recently closed exhibition IN MEMORIAM: Leicester’s War Memorials at Risk.
This is its true home as that is where the School was located until it closed in 2009.
However its successor institution, Gateway Sixth Form College in Hamilton is most interested in fostering a close connection with Newarke Houses and we are working closely with them to facilitate this. For a start we will produce a near full size print on framed foam board which will hang somewhere central in the College.
Along with it will be a book of biographies of the men listed on the memorial using information kindly given by old boy Mr Ken Paterson.
Any further information will be most welcome.
