"We are making sure we speak to the councils and try and divert cyclists away from main roads onto what I call quiet ways in order to encourage people particularly in outer London to cycle rather than have all our eggs in the Embankment cycle superhighway previous generation basket.... the bad news is that as a consequence of the congestion not only is it leading to worse air quality but people are stopping using certain buses because they can't rely on getting from A to B, so it is in everyone's interest to sort out congestion in London".

A war memorial for Winchmore Hill?

on Friday, 12 October 2012. Posted in N21 Community

Many, if not most, towns, villages, suburbs and parishes erected memorials in the aftermath of the First World War. These were almost all funded by public subscription and bore the names of those from that place who had been killed in action in the war. To these memorials were added new names after the Second World War.
 
In Winchmore Hill I understand that plans were drawn up for a memorial to be cast in bronze and erected inside the parish church of St Paul. However, for whatever reason this did not happen and I have no idea whether a public subscription was ever taken up.
 
We are now two years from the centenary of the beginning of the Great War and I have been in conversation with one or two of you over the last year or so about whether this would be a good opportunity to consider raising funds and commissioning a public memorial not only to the First World War but to all those who suffered and continue to suffer as a result of war. There are some rolls of honour and other memorials around in Winchmore Hill, for instance the 3rd Southgate (St Paul's Winchmore Hill) Scout Group has one, as do Winchmore Hill Baptist Church and Winchmore Hill Cricket Club, but there is no public memorial.
 
Initial thoughts about the site for such a memorial have been to place it somewhere on Winchmore Hill Green. The planning of such an enterprise is going to be long and complex and will involve the local authority planning department, local groups and organisations and the public at large. I am writing to you as someone who is involved with the community at this level to gauge initial support. If it seems that there is some enthusiasm for such a project then we will call an initial meeting to take counsel together with others who are interested.

    An excellent idea and we agree that The Green would be the best site.

    Excellent idea to have a war memorial in Winchmore Hill. I favour The Green as the ideal area for such a memorial.

    I'd be against this. Both world wars are now in the past and though WW2 was a terrible necessity WW1 was a terrible mistake. We should not celebrate the start of either war.

    It would be better to plan a memorial to all those who have worked to prevent war - diplomats, jurists, conscientious objectors. The text could be "Blessed are the peacemakers".
