Moreton Cenotaph Relocated at Maryland Lane

IMG_3988

The Royal British Legion Cenotaph is now in its new position on the corner of Maryland Lane at its junction with Pasture Road and is available to the public to pay their respects at any time of the year.   As you will see from the photograph some people have already laid flowers.

I understand from the Council that the Cenotaph is to be painted (but not the base) and two benches are to be sited nearby so that people can sit, and perhaps have a quiet moment of remembrance.

I know that some people are worried about its new location saying the area wont be big enough to accommodate the Remembrance day service on the 8th November, they will be surprised because this really is a big area, and I think bigger than the British Legion area.  People are also concerned about vandalism. Now I understand and respect those concerns, however as its in such a public busy location I hope those concerns do not become reality and that the youth of today respect those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in many of the worlds conflicts.

I will be at the Cenotaph on Sunday 8th November laying a wreath on behalf of the Council and I hope that the turnout is as large if not larger than it has been in previous years.

We Will Remember Them.

PS.   I would like to thank the Council for doing such a great job on behalf of the Royal British Legion in relocating the cenotaph.

  1. Hi Elizabeth I understand there will be a service although the details are sketchy. I have spoken with Reverend Barry Redmore and it is his intention to hold a service. Wirral Council are saying 10:30am for 11am. I will be laying a wreath on behalf of the Council
