THE DATE, TIME, AND LOCATION OF THE NEXT PARISH COUNCIL MEETING WILL BE ADVISED IN DUE COURSE.


20th May 2021

War Memorial Restoration

War Memorial Names 1914/18

After some considerable delay due to difficulty in obtaining quotes for the proposed renovation work on our War Memorial at Beckermet Cemetery, then further problems encountered with inclement weather and the Covid-19 pandemic, we eventually managed, with the skills and expertise of our contractor, Clive Hasley Memorials Ltd, to get our memorial thoroughly cleaned and all the lettering repainted.

This was reported at our Parish Council meeting last night, 19th May 2021, when we resumed face to face meetings. The Parish Council is very happy with the work carried out and hopefully it should be many years before the memorial requires any further work.

The Council agreed a budget of over £1000 for this work and we hope parishioners are happy with this work.

I believe this is the least we can do, and only fitting and appropriate for those of this Parish who paid the ultimate sacrifice in serving their country in two World Wars.
