WORK STARTS AT THE MEMORIAL.
Work has now started at the Memorial site. There is a lot of preparation to
start with, beginning with some remedial work on one side of the upright
plinth that has not weathered so well. This will be followed by a general
clean and polish along the surface of the rest of the plinth before the
major part of placing the 'stairway' on top.
This is all going to take several weeks, so more information will be
reported at different stages of the work in due course'.

GOOD NEWS AT LONG LAST.
As you will see from these photos, hoarding has been erected around the
Memorial site so that work on the final part of the project can start next
week sometime. It is still a very complex job and there will be different
specialists on site during the various stages of work over the coming weeks.
There are 2 windows in the solid green hoarding so that progress can be seen
from the park pathway as well as from the tube stairway. If there are no
hold-ups or set-backs it should all be finished and cleared up just before
Christmas. So, let's keep our fingers crossed for good weather and for
things to run smoothly. We will keep you updated on the progress from time

Work continues on the plinth.
31st October, the paving is being laid.
13th November - The paving is virtually complete and the replanting and seeding is being organised. The plinth still needs its final polish and also the drainage and lighting has to be finished before the plaques and bench can be installed. Phase 1 should then be completed in time for Christmas.
