THE Llandudno and Pernhynside war memorials are both set to benefit from a grants supported by voluntary donations.

The war memorials at Llandudno and Penrhynside are to receive grants of £11,540 and £3,180 respectively, from War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme.

The funding will enable conservation works including repointing to areas of failed or inappropriate mortar, localised conservation cleaning, and associated repairs to be undertaken.

The works have been commissioned by Llandudno Town Council, which is providing the remainder of the funding for the project, and are due to commence on March 28.

The works will be carried out by William Taylor Masonry, a North Wales-based company experienced in architectural stonemasonry, building, restoration and conservation.

A spokesperson for the Town Council said: “These essential works will protect the war memorials from further deterioration and ensure that it continues to serve as a focal point for remembrance.

“The town council would like to express its thanks to the War Memorials Trust for its generous grant towards the cost of the project.”

Frances Moreton, director at War Memorials Trusts, added: “War memorials are touchstones to our past.

“Preserving them maintains the link between those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and later generations who benefit from the freedoms for which they fought.

“War memorials also remind us of the full cost of war so we can hopefully learn the lessons which help us avoid conflict, and further loss, in future.

“War Memorials Trust is pleased to assist this project to improve the condition of the war memorial.

“If anyone knows of any other war memorials in need of help, please contact us or, if you believe in the importance of our work, support us, as we are a charity, so can only give further grants if we raise enough money.”
