John Holland Memorial Day: Saturday 29th June 2019
Anyone who knew John knows that he was involved with numerous projects in and around Portsmouth. To celebrate his life, his contributions to the people of our city, and to express how fond of John his many friends were, a group of them have come together to organise a day of remembrance in his honour on the afternoon and evening of 29th June 2019.
If you want to join us in celebrating and remembering John and the wonderful legacy he has left us, you are most welcome to dip in and out through the day, or follow events from start to finish.
