Shortlands War Memorial restoration complete

Published Tuesday, 24 October 2017

The Shortlands War Memorial will be re-dedicated on Sunday 12 November as part of the Remembrance Sunday events.

The news follows the completion of the restoration work by Skillingtons after the much publicised damage when a car collided with the memorial in July 2016, causing severe damage to the Leckhampton stone cross.

The original stonework has now been carefully pieced together, with final restoration work taking place when the much loved memorial was re-installed in Church Road at the junction with Kingswood Road, outside St Mary’s Church.
