Ilkley Civic Society to unveil new Blue Plaque

A new Blue Plaque is to be unveiled next week in Ilkley on Holocaust Memorial Day.

Next Thursday, 27 January at 2.30pm, Ilkley Civic Society will unveil a Blue Plaque at ‘Loxleigh’, Mount Pleasant/Cowpasture Road, to commemorate its usage as a hostel for Jewish children escaping from Nazi Europe.

This will be followed by a ceremony to celebrate the planting of an oak tree by the Association of Jewish Refugees in its 80th anniversary year at Belle Vue Gardens, Cowpasture Road., also commemorating ‘Loxleigh’.

The society welcomes anyone who would like to attend.
