Blue Plaque Gallery

  1. Very interested to learn about the Blue Plaque scheme featured in the ‘Bygones’ with particular reference to the Beeston area. If there are to be any further nominations I would ask that Anita Yeager and Janice Wells should be considered for recognition and commemorated with a blue plaque. They were young ice skaters from the area who trained and learned their skill at the Nottingham ice rink and succeeded against fierce competition to become skaters in the world famous Holiday on Ice touring company. They appeared on TV in many shows broadcast at that time. They were tragically killed in an horrific car accident whilst on tour with the show in Prague 1972. I have much more detail and am, along with others who remember them for their youth, vivacity and commitment, intending to celebrate their life on the 45th anniversary of their untimely demise next year by submitting an article to the Bygones.

    • Hello,
      Can you give me some details on these two young women please, if they were Beeston or District people we could consider them for the Wall Art Project. We cannot find anything about them on the internet.
      Thank you. Judy Sleath

      • Janice and anita are buried in beeston cemetery close together with two identical headstones which feature an ice skater and a smaller stone tribute from the holiday on ice people The car accident is recorded as 22 December 1972 on the headstones and ages 19 and 18 Anitas surname was Jager

  2. I agree it would be lovely to remember them this way.i was at school with Janice and i know how much she loved to skate.I also knew her father and he would have been proud to see this happen.
