Memorial Update April 2019

A quick update from the War Memorial Project.

We supplied new drawings to the Diocese in Manchester in November 2018.

The reply from the Diocese was handed to back in February 2019 with a request for clarification on some design issues and the Diocese concern about the big Larch tree to the right of the memorial which they considered to be dangerous.


We replied to their letter on 9th March 2019 and are still awaiting their response.

The Council have agreed to remove the offending Larch tree along with two other Larches near to the Church door.

The work will be carried out this month (April 2019).

It is a shame that this project is dragging on and we understand the frustration felt by all those who have supported us over the years.


The Project is far from being cancelled so please ignore any negative rumours or gossip you hear about the Project.

WW1 and WW2 Names

We have over 500 names that we have gathered so far for inclusion on the memorial.

These can be viewed by clicking 'Project' on the menu above
