The Friends set out to have all the local war dead named at the site. The charity wanted to sensitively extend the original memorial site and add further structures with plaques. See a model of our plans (opens in new tab).

Our work also aimed to make the site more accessible from Dollar Park itself (previously access is only via the main pavement outside) and also improve access for people with mobility issues. We needed to raise around £125,000 to carry out the work.

We’ve been working with local firms to deliver the project (read our story).
