Congleton Cenotaph Renovation

Aim:- The current cenotaph and site is looking tied and showing signs of wear and is somewhat restrictive for people with some form of disability. Research has shown that close on 250 names are missing from the memorial and this cannot be allowed to carry on, they all deserve our gratitude and respect. This will be put right by erecting a new memorial on the site, keeping the cross and opening the site up accessibility wise.

We are delighted to announce that we have a start date for construction work to begin the renovation. We would like to thanks all parties who have worked so hard to get this project to this point! 

Week commencing  8th June for the beginning of construction on-site and a completion date of w/c 21st September.

The work is being done by Midland Masonry, specialist in this kind of work.

Our project manager is John K.Carter and Quantity Surveyor is Mark Spendor.
