    Weʼve raised £670 to Help fund a new War Memorial in our village of Abergynolwyn

    Funded on Tuesday, 25th December 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The war memorial situated at the entrance to St David’s Church in Abergynolwyn needs to be replaced. The current memorial is made of wood and has been repaired many times but has sadly seen better days.

    As this year was the centenary of the end of the First World War myself and other villagers thought it a fitting time to get a new permanent plaque made from local slate. The plaque would have the names and ranks of the men who lost their lives from both WW1 and WW2 (19 names in total). A local stone mason has quoted the work to cost £1500.

    Initially it was thought that we would be able to get a grant for this work via CADW (Welsh Government Historic Environment Service), they said they were unable to help and I was sent details of the War Memorial Trust. Unfortunately, they also refused our application on the grounds that the money was for repair only not replacement, even though pictures and a full explanation that the current wooden structure was past repairing was sent and an appeal made for them to kindly reconsider was again rejected.

    Which brings us to the current situation of having to raise the money locally, so that future generations will be able to see the names and pay respects of the men who died from our small village.

    We are planning local events next year such as quiz nights to start raising the money. If anyone can help or offer funding suggestions or is in a position to offer any funding towards this project, we would be grateful of your support.
