Earlier construction


The site where the memorial will be built has now been cleared ready for the builders to move in.

The orange fencing by local firm, J. B. Riney & Co, can clearly be seen in the following photographs. The firm is doing a lot of the clearing work and will be helping with the ground works on the Memorial at half the real cost of the work involved.
