Marti Caine - does she have an official memorial in Sheffield?

Recommended Posts

Does Marti Caine have a memorial stone in front of the town hall, like Joe Scarborough etc. I have not heard anything that she has been nominated for the sheffield-born comediene and charity fundraiser. having met Marti several times either in Scarborough in summer season, in Sheffield out shopping or at a book launch. I went to her funeral at the Cathedral and to the unveiling of the commeration to her and her work. After all we have the Derek Dooley Way (road) in Sheffield, Marti needs to be remembered by Sheffield by naming a building, re-naming a road or a tram. What do you think??????????????

If you have'nt read it, Marti's book "A Coward's Chronicle" is a great book. Down to earth and quite moving.

I would like to see some of her old tv shows again. Think she was the Joan Rivers of England.

Out of interest, are there streets named after the other two? I knew we were twinned with something in China but didn't know what... first I've heard of the other one.

 

And what happened to Darmstadt? Or were we never actually twinned with them? I got the impression that we were way back in schooltime, partly because our school had an exchange/holiday scheme with one of theirs...
