Nick Brown MP Gives Eulogy at Jaap Kroese’s Memorial Service

Nick Brown with Jaap Kroese in 1997

Nick spoke at the Memorial Service for Jaap Kroese in January, who in 1993 helped to save Swan Hunter shipyard by bringing it out of receivership and in doing so safeguarded thousands of jobs in the East End of Newcastle and Wallsend. Jaap sadly passed away on the 29th December. The event at Wallsend Town Hall was heavily attended – a testament to the level of respect, gratitude and affection the community here held for him.
