monument in need of restoration
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.
