Frome Railway Station

A big thank you to Blogging Woolf readers for donating to the Woolf Plaque Supporters’ efforts to install a blue plaque at the Frome Railway Station to memorialize Leonard Woolf’s proposal to Virginia Stephen.

According to the Frome Standard, people from all over the world (including many Blogging Woolf readers) donated to this effort. The publication reports:

Donations have come from all over the world including America and New Zealand after a report in the Frome Standard about fundraising for the plaque was re-posted on the Blogging Woolf website.

A spokeswoman from the Woolf Plaque Supporters said, “‘When we launched our fundraising drive in the Standard in June, we expected donations would begin to trickle in from Frome and the surrounding towns and villages.'”

However, supporters said they were astonished to find that after the article was re-posted on Blogging Woolf, “donations began to come in from all over the world.”

The plaque will be unveiled at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22 on the platform of the Frome Railway Station by Cecil Woolf of Cecil Woolf Publishers of London. Cecil is Leonard’s nephew.

If you attend and take pictures of the event, please share them with us at Blogging Woolf!
