Formby monument restored
Today I am informed that the work is finally complete and the monument is restored to its former glory. The final act was to replace some of the lettering that had been damaged. This has been such a fulfilling exercise, the people who’s names are displayed below are responsible for the restoration. Their generosity in helping to fund the work is to be applauded. Together with members of the GFS committee the goal has been achieved and the monument (judging from the image at left) looks fantastic. Congratulations to all those who subscribed, all those who organised and also to the skilful people who did the restoration.

The George Formby Society wishes to thank…

On behalf of all involved in the task of restoring the monument, I would like to thank all those generous people who unstintingly donated towards the cost of the work done. Whilst care of the monument is not the responsibility of The George Formby Society, without our intervention and the generous donations of all those listed below, the work would not have happened.

Well done to all who committed to the task, between us we have raised a magnificent £1949.46
