Hope for memorial

With regard to the report on page nine of the Whitby Gazette, ‘Granite block will become Whitby’s memorial to those who have fallen in conflict’.

At the harbour board meeting, council clerk Pam Dobson said “Once we get legal agreement, and it goes through, at the town council meeting to be held on 5 March, we would then like to go ahead in April”.

Well let’s hope they do. For according to Councillor Dobson we are now in the hands of Scarborough Borough Council regarding this memorial.

I also hope that if, and when, this memorial is in place, that chunks are not chizzled out of it. As has been cut off our other memorial, Whitby’s War Memorial Hospital.
