The War Memorial in Cromer is one of a small handful of memorials which include a female representative of the Red Cross. The monument in the town centre churchyard, built in 1921 and topped by a statue of St George, had become eroded but, thanks to a project run by David Pritchard, is now restored to its former glory.
This talk will cover the times which include the troubles that shrouded the construction of the War Memorial nearly one hundred years ago to the damage in World War II, the first attempt at repairs and what started as a conversation with a Cromer Town Council colleague in 2013 to the start of the fund raising project when David became Mayor of Cromer.
