WW1 memorial plaques renewed for Sheffield City Battalion

Two WW1 memorial plaques, made of stainless steel, are on their way to France to renew the Sheffield Pals Battalion Monument, part of the Sheffield Memorial Park in Serre. The plaques were presented to Sheffield Council by the Yorkshire Regiment at a Sheffield Town Hall event which also marked the launch of the Sheffield Pals Pride Cycle Ride. Participating in the fundraising cycle ride, a 400 mile journey from the city to the Sheffield Memorial Park in France, will be the Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr Magid Magid, the Lord Mayor’s Consort, Gavin Holliday, and staff from Sheffield Council and Meadowhall. The goal is to raise £20,000 to enhance the visitor experience in the Memorial Park. Baillor Jalloh reports for Sheffield Live!
