Stuart Adamson Memorial Bench Dedication Video

After a long campaign it has finally happened and the memorial bench for Stuart Adamson now has its place in Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline.

A big thanks to Gwenda Matthews for making all this happen in the first place.

A huge thanks to all the fans who helped support this project by donating and also liking and sharing the event and news updates across websites, Facebook and Twitter.

For the dedication ceremony a big thanks goes out to Gwenda Matthews , Colin Gourlay, Allan ( Smid ) Smith , Jamie Davidosn , Fife Council , Contemporary Arts Dunfermline , PJ Molloys , Promotional Impressions , family , friends and the fans.

I tried to capture on video as much from the day as I could and put together a short clip of the days proceedings for the people who couldnt make it, Its not very professional but I hope it captures the day well enough for people to enjoy.

Stuart Adamson memorial bench dedication ceremony

For those who are unaware, a Big Country fan from Wigan (Gwenda Matthews) has for some time now been coordinating a fundraising project and liaising with Fife Council to have a permanent memorial bench placed in Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline (known locally as The Glen) entirely financed by fans of Stuart Adamson and those bands with which he is synonymous.

The funds include those raised at the last major Skids Fans Gathering for a similar project at that time which was never completed.

The bench has now been manufactured and engraved with several sets of Stuart’s lyrics and fitted with a commemorative plaque.

Following a meeting between Gwenda Matthews and Colin Gourlay with two Council Reps in the Glen on Friday afternoon, they have now determined an agreed date for the unveiling of the bench on Saturday 24th September around 12:00 and a short dedication ceremony will take place at this time in a temporary location to the east of the pond until a permanent location is prepared on the west side of the pond following some new landscaping works to be completed before December 16th 2011 (the tenth anniversary of his passing).
