Can I ask if it is possible to get a plaque for my mum? She wasn't a roofer exactly as she didn't have a computer but she was a massive City fan from her childhood till her death last June. I couldn't get her a memorial at the ground as they have stopped doing it now and it was all I really wanted for her to be honest. She had a City funeral with a ball of flowers in blue and white and everyone wore their shirts with pride!! No worries if not but I would be so grateful if that were possible.

As the situation stands there is maybe enough space for 5/6? more
plaques along the top rail
There could be a possibility of moving all the present plaques closer together
making space for a few more?
the other suggestion would be to reduce the size of future plaques and put them on the Arm rests and side styles
when the top rail is full...
Or just stop Dying off.

Annie, space is really limited now and it was discussed earlier on here that it would be getting harder to get plaques on there... so I just wanted to acknowledge your request.. it may not be possible.

Think the Committee (whoever they are) need to discuss.
Personally would love to help Annie out but we do have problematic space issues.

One solution, Woodeye.
Could we make the back rest of the bench a solid piece of wood?
Or at least with vertical slats which are much thicker.
That way we have have loads of space.

At the moment we've only averaged 0.88 plaques per year since the bench was commisioned but with more and more roofers facing an afternoon with the Undertaker then the need to accommodate more plaques needs to be addressed.

Annie talked about her mum enough on here and the previous site for us to know her as much as we know anyone on here we havent met. I dont know as its up to anyone, but if my view counts at all i'd say yes to annie's request.

Well I agree with you NLB.
But I reckon the decision lies with whoever arranged for the bench in the first place.
Which in my book is Mac and Micky.

To make the Bench back solid could well be the best possible answer all round (Marine Ply)
The up side is that If and when the bench becomes the victim of the elements
the whole back panel could be easily removed
and fitted to a new bench'
The down side is just Aesthetics

My two-penneth is;
- re-fix existing plaques a few mm apart from each other, so there's room for a few more in that area
- when full, start fixing them along the farthest-back seat slat
No-one really sits that far back, so it won't affect comfort, etc, and they'll be easier to read than if the bar immediately under the front seat slat were used. The new plaques will only require a slight change in dimensions.
I fear that fixing a solid panel of ply to the finely-slatted back will look like an aesthetic disaster.

Annie me duck: as one of just two women who has the balls (if you don't mind the expression) to post on this testosterone-fuelled site you have my total respect and admiration. Therefore, absolutely no problem in having your Mum's plaque as an Honorary Member on the bench for me either.

If you ever feel brave enough to go beyond your keyboard and would like to meet a few Roofers to put names to faces I'd happily buy you (and your less well-informed footy supporting spouse) a large pre-match sherry. A scary proposition I know but appropriate counselling can be provided.

Where the seat meets the back – it's the farthest back seat slat from the front of the seat.
Almost horizontal, a decent width by the look of the photo, and just away from where people will be resting their buttocks...

kpbw Myself and Mr Annie would love to meet you for a sherry or something else liquid!! I am fully recovered from meeting Soho!! I love meeting roofers - Mr Annie is ok at the match but he sometimes claps the opposition team goals which makes me want to kill him!!

Hopefully I might be able to do something for mum - that would be awesome...
