WEST GREEN MEMORIAL
WW1 - WEST GREEN MEMORIAL - UPDATE AUGUST 2018
BREAKING NEWS We are pleased to announce that a conservation officer has eventually been assigned to this project and we understand a contract has now been issued for the restoration of the memorial and replacement of missing 'Lead Lettering' to help ensure the victims names can be fully identified.
We now have every expectation that this work will be completed ahead of the Armistice Centenary Commemorations in November 2018.
                     ************************************************************
Unfortunately progress towards getting the restoration work to commence on the Memorial is painfully slow. We understand that Haringey Council are still committed to the project but no time frame has been given to when work will commence.

We had hoped the restoration works might have been completed ahead of last years years Remembrance Day service but this was not achieved.  We can only hope now that the work can be completed before the Centenery of the Armistice in November 2018 and the national celebrations to recognise the event.

We have now heard from the new conservation officer who will be responsible for the West Green Memorial project who confirms that partial funding has been agreed but no schedule for the works has been established as yet.

Thank you for your understanding -    
Alan Swain
