LETTER: Memorial restoration

Anybody reading the excellent information board in Beach House Park regarding the many homing pigeons used in the Second World War cannot fail to be moved by their story.

Unfortunately the memorial has very much fallen into a very poor state.

Originally, there was a pond of water at the top and rivulets running down the sides.

Birds came to this spot and drank from the water there.

Now the pond at the top is completely dry and the rivulets no longer run.

It certainly now does not fulfil its original purpose and should be reinstituted to its former state.

It has been fenced off and visitors cannot see the state that it has been allowed to fall into.

Would it be too much to ask for the council to put this memorial back into its original state?

This was meant to be a haven for birds.

As it stands it certainly is not!
