The Congleton Partnership and Congleton Town Council are working on a project to refurbish the Cenotaph site on Lawton Street, Congleton. The current site is looking tired, has poor access for anyone with a disability and more crucially, close on 250 names of the casualties are not recorded on the plaque. To right this wrong, we need to extend the site to include more plaques for the names and at the same time, improve accessibility, appearance and general aesthetics of the area. Plans have been developed with the community and have received planning permission from Cheshire East (Application Number: 17/3982C).
Congleton now has three years to raise the necessary £230,000 to make the project possible. £20,600 is already in the fund. Every amount large or small will help. If you wish to donate or have ideas of ways to raise funds, contact Congleton Partnership Officer- Mike Smith, tel: 01260 270350.
