Balfron War Memorial Restoration

To repair and restore Balfron's historically and architecturally important War Memorial

We did it
On 28th June 2018 we successfully raised £2,670 with 54 supporters in 47 days

Balfron's War Memorial is of significant historical and architectural importance.   After the cairn was cleaned by a volunteer last summer, Balfron Community Council commissioned a survey of the memorial and a significant amount of work is required to restore it to its original condition.   This work will be completed in time for a re-dedication of the Memorial prior to this year's Armistice Day.   We have applied for grant funding for some of the cost of the repair from the War Memorial Trust.   The repairs will be undertaken by specialist conservationists and local craftsmen.
