If any owners of war memorials want to discuss undertaking works and the possibility of receiving a grant to help them they should contact Ian Bond, heritage and rnvironment manager, by Friday April 4 on 01695 585167.

Coun Martin Forshaw, portfolio holder for planning, said: “I would urge the owners of memorials to work with us so we can help them make sure all the memorials are in the best possible condition.”
