Special Event June 2018

Scott 150

SCOTT 150 is really taking shape now, with several additional events planned including a special public lecture by Prof Lloyd Peck aimed at young people the evening of 5 June. This will be hosted by the new Scott College in the city.

Other important news is that the Scott family vault is to be refurbished at Ford Park Cemetery thanks to a grant from Plymouth City Council. This work will be done in time for the Scott family and visitors to view it on 7 June.

Places for the Lectures and the Gala Dinner are limited so it is advisable to book as soon as possible.
