Margaret Clews

(died December 1980)

Margaret was the eldest daughter of Mr. & Mrs. F. H. Clews. She was educated at Newcastle Grammar School and qualified to become a primary school teacher, subsequently teaching on the Westlands, where she lived.

Her strong affection for Newcastle led her to become an active founder member of the Civic Society, as were her parents.

Together with them, she was a member of the Unitarian Meeting House, being the Secretary from the mid 70’s until her death.

Members, friends and local organisations contributed to a memorial fund that financed the commissioning of the plaque from the Royal Label Factory, now part of Leander Architectural, and its installation in Merrial Street by the Borough Council in 1986.
