Whereat Legacy to Live On.

"Norman is affectionately known as Mr Cirencester for his unwavering commitment to making Cirencester a better place for everyone. I am pleased that his legacy will live on through the Whereat Trail"
Mayor Joe Harris

On 8th August, Cirencester Town Council marked the 1st year anniversary of the death of former Mayor and community stalwart Norman Whereat with the unveiling of the ‘Whereat Trail’ to Norman’s family, friends and former colleagues.

Norman enjoyed walking in the Amphitheatre and he often used the route to get to the hospital where he was Chairman of the Hospital League of Friends for 20 years. As such the Council felt it would be fitting to commemorate his life’s work by encouraging more people to visit the place he held close to his heart.

Current Mayor Joe Harris, who unveiled the trail, said ‘Norman is affectionately known as Mr Cirencester for his unwavering commitment to making Cirencester a better place for everyone. I am pleased that his legacy will live on through the Whereat Trail’.

Vera Whereat, Norman’s widow, was pleased with the tribute to her late husband saying her husband would be delighted to see the improvements being made at the Amphitheatre. Norman’s Grandson Matthew Whereat also commented that it was good to see his granddad’s name living on in Cirencester.

The Whereat Trail will use markers and improved signage to clearly mark the route from Cirencester’s Corinium Museum to the Amphitheatre. This will be accompanied by an illustrated map and leaflet, as well as
increased interpretation at the Amphitheatre itself.

Work on the trail now begins in earnest over the Autumn and Winter seasons with promotion of the trail starting in Spring 2014.

Gloucestershire County Highways, English Heritage and the Corinium Museum are supporting the Town Council to deliver this project.
