Winterbourne Down receives a funding boost from Grants for War Memorials Scheme

Date: 21 November 2017

Status: Immediate release

 

Winterbourne Down war memorial will benefit from a grant of £5,400 from the War Memorial Trust.

The money will enable the war memorial in All Saints Churchyard to be levelled.

Those involved in the project are Trustees of All Saints Trust Burial Ground.

Frances Moreton, Director, War Memorials Trust said “War memorials are a tangible connection to our shared past creating a link between the fallen and today.  It is vital we ensure all our war memorials are in the best possible condition for their age and the charity is delighted to support this project.  The centenary of World War I is a wonderful opportunity for local communities across the country to protect and conserve their war memorials.  If anyone knows of any other war memorials in need of help please contact us”.
