Our new War Memorial is now complete and a dedication ceremony took place place on Sunday 11 October starting with a parade from the Recreation Ground. It was attended by our own Town Mayor and a special guest, The Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, representing the Queen.
The need for a new monument came about due to the existing monument in the Memorial Gardens starting to erode quite badly but, which sadly, cannot be repaired.
Two new memorials were commissioned to stand nearby to the original with corrected spelling mistakes and with the addition of some names which were originally omitted.
Thanks to everyone who has donated to this project and thanks to the Royal British Legion Bollington Branch and particularly Town Councillor Allan Williams for commissioning and organising the building work – all done by local craftsman using local stone from Kerridge. Thanks also to Cheshire East Council for a £5000 grant.
