It's all been a bit quiet on the blog front lately, but the project has still been making progress. I'll be sending out a newsletter soon so if you're not on the email list and would like to be, send me a message

On the research front, I've been collecting bits and pieces to add to several entries, details from battalion war diaries, photographs of memorials etc. I hope to be adding them over the next week.

On the memorial restoration front, a local craftsman is looking at the details of the memorial and preparing a quote. I'm very excited that he's interested in the project and he seems to be positive that he can do it with the available information. Of course, the next step is the fundraising but I'll ignore that while I still can!

In other news, St James Church is to be part of this years Liverpool Open Culture Month. Which means the church will be open to the public (at certain times) and on Saturdays there will be a chance to look around the church and find out more about its heritage. I will be there talking about the memorials and displaying information about the research project. I'll post details of the open days when they are confirmed.

Work on the Holy Trinity Memorial has begun, I've been researching the names and have discovered some amazing stories. I hope to start publishing them on the blog soon.
