Excellent news: the much-loved War Memorial on Wallington Green has been given Grade II listed status.
The First World War memorial was unveiled on 1st March 1922, with later additions for the Second World War.
The memorial is being given the designation because of its historic interest and its architectural interest, particularly the high level of craftsmanship on the pillar and the good quality materials used.
In the last Wallington North Focus newsletter, local Councillors Joyce Melican, Marian Radford and Sunita Gordon asked for volunteers to become ‘Friends of Wallington Green’ to help with the upkeep of the beautiful green. Several replies were received but due to technical problems have been lost. If anyone is interested, please get in touch with your Councillors here.
