Bury St Edmunds: Damage caused to war memorial
EXPERTS could be drafted in to help preserve two war memorials after concerns were voiced about their condition.
Bury St Edmunds Town Council has agreed to apply for funding from the War Memorials Trust to help it meet the costs of specialist stone and metal conservators.
It is hoped the experts will be able to check on the condition of the town’s war memorials in Angel Hill and the Cornhill.
The war memorial in Cornhill has recently started to show signs of damage on its outer perimeter.
It is thought the nicks in the brickwork have been caused by cars or lorries clipping it.
