Bootle war memorial to be re-dedicated this weekend

Posted at 11:52 2 Sept

A war memorial in will be re-dedicated this weekend after being restored to its former glory.

Work on the bronze and stone statues in Bootle's Kings Gardens began earlier this year, following a grant from the War Memorials Trust.

I was there and it was very moving, particularly the unveiling of the VC stone. I won't mention the 'poor' local turn out. Sadly the memorial had to have graffiti removed on the very morning, as some brats decided to declare their love for each other on it the night before !!!!!
