York needs a lesson in how to remember
ON A recent business trip to Huddersfield I was greated by a statue outside the station of our past Prime Minster Harold Wilson, who was born In Huddersfield in 1916.
As I made my way to the office, I thought to myself why in York do we not have we a statue to honour the famous people born in or associated with our lovely city?
I am sure that a staute of one of the following who were born here could be designed and places in say Parliament Square:
• Frankie Howerd , born 6.3.17;
• John Barry, born 9.12.34;
• Judi Dench, born 3.11.33.
Other towns in the UK have built statues to remember their famous inhabitants. So why can’t we?
