A MEMORIAL which pays tribute to the soldiers and civilians from Weston who lost their lives in the Second World War has been rededicated.

Weston Town Council and North Somerset Council recently completed the refurbishment of the Town War Memorial in Grove Park.

The rededication ceremony, which was held on Monday to mark the restoration, was led by the town mayor’s chaplain the Reverend Keith Hallet and was attended by guests and local dignitaries.

Town clerk Malcolm Nicholson said: “It is important that the memory of those who have fallen in conflicts is remembered.

“We are delighted to have been able to work in partnership with North Somerset Council to replace the missing plaques and restore the stonework of the memorial.”

Both councils thanked all the members of the public who responded to their request for information about the names on the plaques that had been removed.
