What we plan

The committee – Tony,  Chris, Dave & Sue have agreed we should remember all Seafarers who sailed during WW1 & WW2 with two memorials.

One will be situated in Runcorn cemetery, this will be a purpose built area dedicated to all Seafarers. We hope to have the funds to do this in the near future.

The other memorial will be with the statue at Spike island West Bank Widnes.

Halton Borough Council have already drafted a design for the area, it will be a paved area surrounded by a low semi circular wall, this will house the memorial.

The statue will be in the centre and will be up lit by solar lights.

It is planned – subject to funds – to be unveiled in the summer of 2022.
