NEWS: Chilwell Memorial – Restoration Works Set to Start

Having raised in Parliament the poor state of the memorial to those killed in the 1918 Chilwell Munitions factory explosion, I am pleased to report work will start soon on its restoration. In a letter from the Minister Tobias Ellwood, he tells me that a contract has been awarded to a specialist company. The memorial will be cleaned and some minor damage will be repaired – and all in time for the commemorations which begin later this month.
