WEYMOUTH: War memorial repairs

WEYMOUTH’S American War Memorial is to undergo a £20,000 revamp.

The Grade II listed structure commemorates American servicemen and women who lost their lives on the Normandy beaches during the Second World War after passing through Weymouth.

A specialist surveyor was commissioned to identify defects with the memorial and found its supports needed to be repaired to ensure its long-term stability.

The memorial will be dismantled during the process in order to fix it with stainless steel supporting beams.

It was erected in 1947 and is made from Portland Stone.

The works will cost £20,000 with half funded by the War Memorials Trust and the other half by Weymouth and Portland council.

Works have just  started and are expected to take around six weeks to complete.
