The Town Council is working with the Knutsford Royal British Legion to establish a new central War Memorial for Knutsford as a key part of the commemoration of the centenary of the First World War. A working group of Councillors and representatives of the Knutsford RBL have been working to develop plans and are pleased to announce a consultation on the proposals.
The Town Council and Knutsford Royal British Legion propose to relocate the Haron Baronian statue, currently at the Memorial Cottage Hospital on Northwich Road to the Library Gardens to create a new War Memorial.
The working group investigated a number of potential sites in the town centre, including the Little Heath and Wallwood among many others, and settled upon the Library Gardens as the best site. The primary reasons for the Library site is that it offers security for the important statute and would provide a suitable memorial garden and space for remembrance services.
