Wetherspoons is opening a new establishment in Dumbarton, at the old Woolworth site on the High Street, but intends to name it the 'The Sir James Laing'.

Sir James Laingwas a Tyneside shipbuilder, surely Wetherspoons could have carried out some local research and used the name of a local business / trades person i.e Archibald McMillan, shipbuilder at the West Bridgend from 1832 - 1930, or Peter Denny who started the 'Denny Brothers' yard.

Although neither McMillan or Denny were knighted surely their names are far better candidates than that of a knighted Tyneside shipbuilder.

Please sign this petition which we can forward to Wetherspoon and let them know the people of the local area have a voice and are not happy about the proposed name for their new establishment.

Thank you for your support.
