Eric Wright Construction Donate Two Interpretation Boards for Chorley Pals Memorial

The iconic Chorley Pals Memorial will be illuminated for the first time at 4.30 pm on Friday 2nd November 2018, ahead of Remembrance Sunday and the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War.

It is the final stage of the redevelopment of the memorial that was unveiled in February 2010 in the centre of Chorley. The work started a month ago to totally re-new the paving around the statue, adding new benches and two new interpretation boards as well as four up-lights. The latter will now mean that the statue is illuminated each evening from dusk, courtesy of Chorley Council as part of their work on the adjacent Market Walk Shopping Centre; the interpretation boards have been kindly donated by contractors Eric Wright Construction.

Sir Lindsay Hoyle, MP for Chorley and Chairman & Co-Founder of the Chorley Pals Memorial Trust will attend the event, along with the Mayor of Chorley and other invited guests.  The memorial will then be open to the public once again, overlooking the Flat Iron market where the Pals paraded in 1914 and 1915 before going off to war.
