The Kidderminster War Memorial 1922 - 2007

Don Gilbert

 

Available now from Kidderminster Town Hall and Kidderminster Library for just 5!

THE driving force behind the renovation of the Kidderminster War Memorial said he was "chuffed to bits" over the rededication taking place this Saturday. Independent Health Concern councillor, Ken Stokes, chairman of the Kidderminster War Memorials Conservation Trust, spearheaded the campaign to restore the site when serving as town Mayor in 2002.

He said: "I feel great we have achieved what we set out to do. It has given me great pride in myself and everyone involved. It was something that needed doing for the town. I think the contractors have done a very reasonable job on the war memorial. The names were ineligible at one time but are now clear to the eye.The Winged Figure of Peace statue, on the other hand, is a beautiful monument that will continually need looking after."
