Hednesford Miner's Memorial extension
7th June 2011
... Comments

CHAPS (Chase Arts for Public Spaces) were recently pleased to announce that they had been granted the necessary approvals for the second and final phase of the Miner’s Memorial in Hednesford town centre.  After a huge response from the public, work towards processing the requests for the named bricks that will form the basis of the memorial is now underway.


Official application forms have now been distributed to all those who have already expressed an interest in purchasing a brick(s).  However, new requests from anyone who has not yet been in touch with CHAPS are still invited.  The Committee wish to remind applicants that requests can include names of underground and above ground workers, and that they are not limited to those persons sadly deceased.


The deadline for receipt of all completed applications, along with the relevant payment of £20 per brick, is Monday 1 August 2011.  Anyone who wishes to receive an application form should contact Julie Shires.  Julie can be contacted by emailing minersmem@cannockchasedc.gov.uk or by telephoning 01543 877666 on Mondays or Wednesdays between 1.30pm and 4.30pm.


CHAPS propose that work on the construction of the memorial will commence in October 2011.
