TOWN hall bosses in Douglas are looking at creating a permanent memorial to the Bee Gees.
The move came after a member of the public wrote in, proposing a small memorial be erected to the late Robin and Maurice Gibb.
Douglas Council’s executive committee discussed erecting a ‘blue plaque’ at the Gibbs’ former home in St Catherine’s Drive.
Another suggestion was to dedicate a glass wall feature to the Bee Gees as part of the redevelopment of Douglas promenades. Council leader David Christian said the Freedom of the Borough awarded in 2009 was a more personal tribute and it was time for a public tribute – but this should be to all Bee Gees, rather than just to the late Robin and Maurice Gibb.
Douglas Council ratified a decision to look at incorporating a Bee Gees memorial into the Douglas promenades redevelopment and to look at the merits of introducing a blue plaque system.
