BREAKING NEWS - WEST GREEN MEMORIAL
Thanks to the help from Cllr Barbara Blake and the conservation surveyor at Haringey Council we have been informed that the council have agreed to contribute £5,000 towards the cost of restoring the memorial and we understand that additional resources are likely from the War Memorials Trust.
This could not have been achieved without the tireless work of Ray Swain, supported by the Friends of Downhills Park. We are now hopeful that the works will be completed ahead of the Centenary of the WW1 Armistice in 2018.
PROJECT UPDATE: We have recently discoverd that the conservation surveyor at Haringey Council has left her post. We are now awaiting to hear who has replaced her but clearly this will unfortunatle add further delays to the proceedigs. We had hoped the restoration works might have been completed ahead of this years Remembrance Day service.
