War Memorials, Walton

Maintenance of war memorials has always been one of the Town Council’s highest priorities.  The Town Council is therefore very pleased to have received a grant of £1279 from the County Council’s Community Initiatives Fund towards restoring the plinth on the main memorial and cleaning the RAF memorial.  Tendring District Council has also offered £500.  Work can now start and both memorials will be looking their best for Remembrance Sunday.

Garden Court Seafront Shelter

The Edwardian shelter opposite Frinton Court has now been fully restored.  The condition was worse than it first appeared and much more work was required than had been anticipated.  It is now, once again, a very pleasing piece of seaside architecture. The cost of restoration was 50% grant aided by the County Council’s Community Initiatives Fund.
