Etta's Seat

Artist Colin Wilbourne and Craig Knowles

This seat was commissioned by Anne and John Hudson, residents of West Boldon to commemorate Anne's mother, Etta, who was the tenant of the Red Lion public house from 1960 to 1980. 

The monument was given a South Tyneside Good Design Award in 2006
