Just to let members know that I have on behalf of Stonehouse Heritage Group, supported by the Community Council and Changing Places applied to Awards For All, for funding to repair and clean the memorial, also refurbish the existing inscriptions and add 24 names missing from WW1 and 4 names missing from WW2. Mr Bill Stanley of South Lanarkshire Council is happy for this project to proceed and the works will be carried out by Registered Monumental Masons if funding is granted.

Can you give us details of the missing names? I'm sure it would be of interest to everyone here.

Thanks for that David, it was a pleasure to be able to arrange the the rededication ceremony. The many people that attended todays ceremony is testament to the high regard in which we hold for the men and women of our Armed Forces and,for those who have made the supreme sacrifice.

Lest we forget.

The memorial looks great, and the weather was just right for the service. The sun came out, and the rain held off until the service had concluded.
