Churwell Memorial Gardens Improved

The Memorial Gardens on Elland Road in Churwell, have been improved following action taken by Morley Town Council.  The work to improve the gardens included sandblasting the peeling paint off the steel gates and ornate railings and the repainting of both in their traditional colours.

Councillor Andrew Hutchison, who represents Churwell on Leeds City Council said “The Memorial Gardens were first opened in 1924 to remember those who lost their lives in World War One.  We are delighted we are able to improve the gardens prior to the Remembrance period, which will see the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War One..”

The work has been financed using funds the Town Council received from the Community Infrastructure Levy.  The Memorial Gardens also contain the names of Churwell residents who gave their lives in both World Wars along with later conflicts.

British Legion member Councillor Wyn Kidger said “The people of Churwell are rightly proud of their Memorial Gardens and remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our present day freedoms.   We are please we have been able to get the work completed.”
