Update on Dennistoun War Memorial

Delighted to say that work will commence on placing the DWM in Alexandra Park in early August.

Unveiling date is set for Sat 29/9/18. We will be having a parade of veterans, cadets, scouts, local schoolchildren etc led by a pipe band starting at city park @11am.

They will then march to alexandra park where we will have a ceremony to unveil the memorial and to honour Dennistoun's fallen.
9 year old Owen McGuire's design won the memorial competition and it will be unveiled by 84 year old Dennistoun veteran Dick Gilmour.

DWM campaign really has brought the different generations together. I hope as many residents as possible turn out for what promises to be a unforgettable day in Dennistouns history.

The Granite memorial will be placed directly inside the main gates.

I heard about the vandalism to the war memorial a while ago - apparently some yobs thought it would be funny to set it on fire and the tarpaulin was badly damaged (it didn't say if any damage had been done to the actual memorial) will the unveiling ceremony still be taking place on 29/9/18
