The Finchley Society hosted a ceremony in Stephens House grounds at which a life-size bronze statue of Spike Milligan, a former President and Patron of the Society, was unveiled. Finchley Society Chairman, David Smith, opened the ceremony attended by over 250 people, including Sir Michael Parkinson, Terry Gilliam, Lynsey de Paul and Maureen Lipman. He noted how Spike had helped stimulate the setting up the Society in his work to save a row of old cottages in Lodge Lane and his letter writing campaigning. Thanks were given to Barbara Warren of the Society who worked tirelessly for 10 years to achieve the goal of having this memorial to Spike.
