Lisa Pontecorvo memorial events

There will be two local memorial events, one in Edward Square (which Lisa founded) and one here in Thornhill Square where she lived. The Edward Square event is on Friday 14 November (details below from Paul Convery). The Thornhill Square event is not yet scheduled as we are honouring Lisa with the planting of a magnolia and the installation of a memorial bench but we don’t yet know when the bench will be ready. Once we do know, we will circulate a date.

If you would like to make a contribution towards the bench, please page down to see the previous posting.

A big thanks to Anna McKane and Aron Cronin for adminstering the collection and thanks to Lisa’s close friend Rupert Perry, in Huntingdon Street, for the inscription wording.

Yours ever,
Jen (Secretary) and Emma (Chair)

Paul Convery’s email about the Edward Square Event

The date has now been confirmed for the memorial event in Edward Square to celebrate and commemorate the life of Lisa. I apologise for the slight delay in finally settling this but we now have a date and time that seems to maximise involvement and attendance.

It will be held on Friday 14th November at around 2pm in Edwards Square. We shall have a large marquee erected, refreshments, music, art and performances arranged (so far) from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, local schools and from Lisa friends and neighbours. Much of the organisational burden is being handled by staff in the Council's Greenspace department and we are very grateful for their contribution.

Further details will be circulated shortly and we shall be widely publicising the event throughout the neighbourhood and Borough.

Best wishes,
Paul
