Back in the 80′s Linda was a driving force in the campaign to save our village landmark, The Old Fire Station, for posterity. She always supported the continued work that the Sandgate Heritage Trust do to maintain and preserve this iconic and much loved building. She maintained interest and continued to voice her suggestions for improvements right up to her passing. The Trust and the Sandgate Community are indebted to her for her fortitude in her campaigning and for the generosity she always showed the Sandgate Heritage Trust.
To mark our gratitude and to commemorate and celebrate the life of Linda, the Trustees of the Sandgate Heritage Trust, commissioned a decal for the Front Door to the Reading Room of the Old Fire Station. The design was based on a woodcut by Michael Renton, which was commissioned by Linda in 1984. It was then used as the Letterhead and in publicity leaflets.
This shows the success, for the Trust, of the Postcards produced!
