WINSFORD Town Council is working to make much-needed improvements to the two town centre war memorials.

The project – first announced earlier this year - is now gathering momentum with local people taking a keen interest in the improvement work.

Mark Bailey, clerk to Winsford Town Council, said: “The improvements to the war memorials have been a high priority for Winsford Town Council for many years now. It feels like this is the right to time to get the job done – please support the work by completing the short survey.”

One of the first steps for the project is to encourage local support and involve as many people as possible so it can be proved that the work is needed and wanted by the local people of Winsford.

Once proved, Winsford Town Council intends to apply for various pieces of funding such as through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

To help this process and encourage people to take part, as well as collecting valuable feedback, a web page has been launched where people will be able to leave a comment, track progress and more importantly at this initial stage complete a survey asking their opinions on 2 design options.

The town council are working alongside social enterprise firm Proffitts – Investing in Communities.

Martin Proffitt, from Proffitts, said: “It is really important that as many people as possible have their say, this will prove to any funders we go to that the improvements are essential and are supported by local people.”
