This was a wonderful occasion shared with the family of Mary Macarthur, members of The Friend’s Group and many, many people who braved the weather to celebrate the unveiling of the monument by the artist, with the Phoenix Brass Band playing in the background.

There was a very large crowd at the Union event who would be going up to the Bearmore Mound after the ceremony to  the T U C celebrations of the 1910 woman’s strike.

I received a framed portrait of Mary from her grandson, which would be going to Cradley Heath Library where it will take pride of place.
