Margaret Henry was an indefatigable campaigner for a Newcastle planned for the needs of its community. Margaret was a Greens Councillor on Newcastle City from 1995 until 2004. She was also a founder of Save Our Rail and campaigned until she could no longer appear in public to save the intercity rail line into Newcastle.
Marcus Westbury, founder of Renew Newcastle and significant figure in the “This Is Not Art” Festival, will be the featured speaker. Marcus was one of the many people Margaret encouraged and supported in their endeavours to improve the social engagement of Novocastrians.
Please come along to this memorial lecture in her honour.
This coming Wednesday in the Concert Hall, City Hall.
