Many of our residents will remember Saturday the 1st June 1974

At about 16:53 hours the Nypro (UK) site at  Flixborough was severely damaged by a large explosion. Twenty-eight workers were killed and a further 36 suffered injuries. It is recognised that the number of casualties would have been more if the incident had occurred on a  weekday, as the main office block was not occupied. Offsite consequences  resulted in fifty-three reported injuries. Property in the surrounding area  was damaged to a varying degree.

We invite residents to attend The All Saints Church Flixborough memorial service at 11:15am on Sunday 1st June 2014 to remember those who lost their lives and those that were injured in the tragedy.
