International Workers Memorial Update

Dear all, 2010 saw many advancements in bringing the memorial project to fruition. Design plans were finalised, the site assessed by the engineers, planning permission granted, lighting designed and a myriad of other small but important details attended to.

Before the project can commence work must begin on the riverside site, establishing access roads and services. Plans are evolving to this end and delays caused by the economic climate hopefully will pass soon.

By virtue of scale and importance it is vital that the memorial and its immediate surrounds are designed as an integral part of the whole. I am working closely with the Dawn Group and their architects to ensure this.

Funding through donations continues to flow from individuals and organisations and I am hopeful that 2011 will bring commencement to the project.

Wishing you all that good fortune can bring in this new year.

Kindest regards
Tom McKendrick
