Blue Plaque for Jack Jones

"Dear all, as it’s 100 years ago this year that Jack Jones was born, it
is appropriate to ask you to support this campaign.

Southwark News and Southwark Historical Society have drawn up a
shortlist of former and current residents and buildings nominated to
have a Blue Plaque dedicated to them. Only one will be successful following a public vote.

The shortlist includes Jack Jones, International Brigader, trade union and pensioners’ leader.

You don’t have to be a resident of Southwark to vote. Email Southwark News saying you’d like to vote for Jack Jones to get the 2013 Blue Plaque.

The email address is  Deadline is 31st October. Please circulate widely" .
