Clarkston Gas Explosion Memorial 

On 21 October 1971, Scotland’s worst peacetime explosion occurred at the Clarkston Toll shopping precinct. The explosion had a devastating impact, with 22 people losing their lives and more than 100 people being injured. At present, there is a small memorial plaque at the location of the disaster, a memorial tree at the entrance to the car park in front of Clarkston Halls and a plaque remembering those who lost their lives inside Clarkston Halls. During the 50th anniversary memorial, several people suggested that they would benefit from a more suitable memorial space that would allow them to reflect and remember all those impacted by the explosion. As such, Kirsten Oswald MP and Clarkston Community Council are seeking the views of those affected by the explosion and residents of Clarkston in regard to an additional memorial, which Scottish Gas has offered to contribute funding for. We would be grateful for your input via the questions below.
