1979 was a big year for Hanover as the organisation split to become Hanover England and Hanover (Scotland).

As Hanover Scotland celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2019, we thought we would list some of the other landmark events that took place in a memorable year:

  • Margaret Thatcher becomes the UK’s first female Prime Minister
  • Nottingham Forest win their first European Cup under Brian Clough
  • Queen Elizabeth’s cousin, Lord Mountbatten, is assassinated by the IRA
  • Not the Nine O’Clock News airs for the first time, helping Rowan Atkinson, Griff Rhys Jones, Mel Smith and Pamela Stephenson to become household names

Prior to this we were part of Hanover Housing Association (England) which is still in operation today.
