A campaign by the Friends of Broomfield Park to restore the Park's Remembrance Garden has finally succeeded.  Enfield Council notified the Friends this week that the War Memorial Trust has agreed to a grant of £63,270 to the Council.  This represents 75 per cent of the total cost - the remainder will be paid by the Council

  1. War Memorial Temple - roof repairs and new stained glass windows replicating the original design.
  2. Memorial cairn - repair of damaged stones
  3. Terrace paving - repair and replacement of paved areas and steps in front of the Memorial.
  4. Pond and fountain - repair of damaged plinth and new urn with working fountain.
  5. Bird bath - Levelling the base and new stone bath installed
  6. Pergola - replacement of rotten timbers.
  7. Entrance archways and walls - repairs to brickwork 8. Handrails installed for disabled access (by the steps under the pergola and at the Broomfield Lane entrance)

Work is expected to begin in April.

According to Friends committee member Sue Younger, who has been leading the efforts to restore this highly individual remembrance garden, the good news comes after nearly three years of campaigning.  She says that "The moral is, if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again."

The restoration work on the Broomfield Park Remembrance Garden is almost complete as those who attended yesterday's Remembrance ceremony could see.
