      Hello everyone,

      I met with the Hetton council last Friday to arrange the unveiling time of the memorial. I also met with Dave Jefferson who is building the memorial and I met with wades memorials who are sorting the granite tablet for us. Everything was fine and we are all ready for the big day!

      The time of the unveiling is at 1pm on Saturday 16th of August and will take place in Hetton Mini Park.

      I’m pleased to announce that Bob’s son Robert Paisley will carry out the unveiling. Also in attendance will be the Lady Mayor, Councillor Mrs J Heron.


      The Mini Park is where the war memorial is and its right next to a Somerfields supermarket. You can’t really miss this as its right in the town centre of Hetton-le-Hole, just follow the signs for Hetton centre. The Hetton centre is the council offices and is right next to the Eppleton Colliery pitch that Sunderland use for reserve fixtures. There is parking available at the Hetton centre for anyone driving up.

      If your looking for Hetton-le-Hole on the map its just north of junction 62 on the A1(M) off the A690.

      As I said I spent some time with the builders Dave Jefferson and Sons who are carrying out the work. Dave came very highly recommended and is local to the area, which was one of our must haves. He’s a great lad and came up with the idea of a time capsule under the memorial. We think that’s a lovely touch and shows the pride that Dave Jefferson and Sons have in the work they’re doing for the Bob Paisley memorial.

      So it should be a good start to the new season and we hope you come along and see the unveiling of the Bob Paisley memorial.

      EVERYBODY is more than welcome.

      Ian.

      Thanks for keeping us updated mate.

      For the benefit of anyone thinking of making the trip up to Hetton-le-Hole, do you know roughly how long it might take by car to get there from Liverpool and do you know the postal code for the area where the park is?

      Great news that Bobs son Robert will be carrying out the unveiling. Exciting times.

      Cheers Ian!

      It takes us about 4 hours to get up there redkenny and we usually sack the M62 in favour of the M6 route. We get off the M6 at Tebay and take the A roads through Kirby Stephen and Barnard castle till we hit the A1(M). We find the M62 route to be a lot slower than the M6 because of the weight of traffic

      The post code of the Hetton Centre is DH5 9NE. Thats where you'll park and its a two minute walk to the mini park.

      Just checked the M6 route and its 161 miles from our house.

      A special memorial to honour the life and achievements of the great Bob Paisley will be unveiled in his hometown of Hetton-Le-Hole on Saturday. 
      Following a unique and dedicated campaign by a group of Liverpool supporters, a memorial in the form of a stone surround and engraved granite plaque will be erected in Bob Paisley's honour.
       
      This will give the residents of Hetton-Le-Hole a lasting and fitting tribute to one of their greatest sons.
       
      The unveiling will be on Saturday at 1pm in Hetton mini park, Hetton-Le-Hole. The ceremony will be performed by the Mayor of Hetton, Councillor Mrs J Heron, Bob's son Robert Paisley and Ian Graves, Chairman of the Bob Paisley Memorial Committee.

      I did some research and it is a bit away but what better way to spend a Saturday then paying tribute to the man who reshaped this great club.

      This just makes all those 'fans' who boo the team look so insignificant and these guys who set this up make you proud. The spirit of Liverpool lives on.

      I’m very proud to announce that the Bob Paisley Memorial has been unveiled.

      Hundreds of Liverpool supporters, Sunderland supporters and local townsfolk turned out for the occasion. The Paisley family where represented by Bobs son Robert Paisley and his brother Hughie among many others. Hetton town clerk John Price organised the day and the lady Mayor Mrs J Heron oversaw the days events.










      The memorial was very well received and everybody was delighted to see it but, most importantly, the Paisley family where thrilled to see the great Bob Paisley honoured in this way in his home town.




      On behalf of the Bob Paisley memorial committee I’d like to thank the moderators of this website for allowing us to publicise our appeal here and I’d like to thank each and every one of you who supported this fans initiative in any way, be it by buying a T shirt, donating money or generally supporting us in any way at all.

      Each and every one of you should feel immensely proud of yourselves.

      I’d also like to thank John Moore and Peter Etherington of www.onthekop.com for allowing their LFC website to be the home of the Bob Paisley Memorial campaign.


      If anyone is still to visit Hetton-le-Hole to see the memorial that you have helped build then you may be interested to hear that Liverpool FC reserves are playing Sunderland reserves in Hetton-le-Hole on SEPTEMBER 17TH  with a 7pm kick off time. The game is being played on the former Eppleton Colliery Pitch which is situated at the Hetton Centre, just a short walk from where the memorial is sited with an entrance fee of something like £3 so, if your in the area or are visiting from further afield, why not take the game in at the same time.

      The postcode for the Hetton Centre is DH5 9NE if you’d like to check google maps.

      I’d also like to announce that LFC.TV are showing a special half hour documentary on Thursday 21st August at 7pm which covers the unveiling very well. In the meantime, here are three youtube clips of the day itself

      Part One

      Part Three

      So, that’s it. Our crusade is over.

      Thank you all very much indeed.

      There's no need to feel bad at all JD, in fact I'd like to thank you for doing it. I couldn't get anything across the sites any earlier as I'd made a pigs ear of all my photo's and had to start again  ;D

      This site has been a great friend of the campaign and it was always a pleasure to read the feedback.

      Again, thanks for having me. Its very much appreciated.

      One of my mates went to this.  Said it was a pretty emotional affair.

      Good on you lot.  Damn right Liddell up next.
