Queens Lancashire Regiment Memorial at the National Arboretum

Queens Lancashire Regiment Memorial at the National Arboretum

QLR Memorial finally unveiled

After a nine-month delay forced by the Coronavirus emergency, it was a great to finally install our bronze plaque as part of the memorial for the QLR at the National Memorial Arboretum, the nation’s year-round centre for remembrance.

The memorial, the result of an extraordinary and monumental fund-raising effort, commemorates The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment, and those that served in the fine and proud county regiment.

It was due to be unveiled in March before the largest gathering of former members of the Regiment since it was amalgamated in 2006, but the Coronavirus outbreak forced a delay in completion and postponement of the unveiling.

Installation was completed in December 2020, ready for a re-organised official dedication ceremony, hopefully to be held later in 2021 once it is safe to do so.

It was a great honour to work on the project.

WHAMM statue unveiled

WHAMM statue unveiled

Wigan Heritage and Mining Monument

This piece was finally installed late one cold February night just before the lockdown in March 2020.  Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there wasn't an official unveiling ceremony.  Hopefully this will happen at some point in 2021.

This is a copy of the press release from " Wigan Today" :-

" Wigan’s long-awaited mining stature has finally been unveiled.

The covers were removed quietly and without fanfare after the original reveal event was cancelled because of the current pandemic crisis.

The sculpture designed and crafted by Hull-based Steve Winterburn (who also did the nearby Billy Boston statue) has finally become a reality after years of hard work by members of the local history group WHAMM, whose chair Sheila Ramsdale was the inspiration behind the project.

TThe statue features a miner, pit brow lass and a child, and now proudly stands near Wigan Town Hall – the borough’s former mining college.

There are plans for an official unveiling later in the year. "

K.O.Y.L.I Memorial Unveiled

K.O.Y.L.I Memorial Unveiled

War Memorial Unveiled August 1st

On Wednesday 1st August 2018, we unveiled our memorial for the K.O.Y.L.I regiment in Elmfield Park in Doncaster. This project first started around 2 and a half years ago.  It has been a very thorough process working with the regiment very closely, making changes and tweaks down to the finest details making sure we could make it as authentic and accurate as possible.

For us as a family business it has been an honour and a pleasure to work with this regiment whose values are very much based around family. The whole journey has been very humbling and emotional and none more so than the unveiling day, with it being Yorkshire Day, Minden Day and the 50th anniversary of the regiments end it really was a moving experience.

Over 400 people attended on August 1st, including Mayors from Doncaster and the surrounding areas, with BBC and ITV both in attendance for coverage on tv.  Seeing so many people was a real credit to the hard work the K.O.Y.L.I committee had put in, in order for this day to happen. It was also brilliant to meet all of the veterans and their families and to hear their thoughts on the statue.  All of the feedback we received was positive which was so overwhelming and made all the hardwork worth while.
