Rotherham District Civic Society
Blue Plaque Scheme
Rotherham District Civic Society is proud to have an impressive Blue Plaque scheme that is recognised and celebrated as a symbol of Rotherham's heritage and a living footprint of the Town's history.
The increasing number of Blue Plaques unveiled serves as a permanent reminder to the important contributions of the history of Rotherham, the country and the World.
The Rotherham District Civic Society commemorates the contributions, lives and notable influences it has excerted together with succesful people from all walks of life.
The work of the society is only made possible through its membership which has considerably reduced, the sale of its publications and support through generous donations.
The long term future of the Blue Plaque scheme relies entirely upon the generosity of those who value its historic significance. As a Registered Charity (No. 258831) we seek everyone support to continue the recognition and placement of these important markers.
The approximate manufacturing cost of a Blue Plaque is £500. If you value the work of the Rotherham District Civic Society please consider making a donation no matter how small.
We aim to raise £8,000 to be able to site and unveil 16 Blue Plaques.
