Rededication of Southgate Town Hall War Memorials
Two war memorials commemorating Southgate Council employees who died in action in World War One and World War Two will be unveiled by the Mayor of Enfield in a re-dedication service, which the families of some of the fallen are due to attend.
The memorials were removed from the main entrance to the Southgate Town Hall in 2012 by Museum of Enfield staff when the building was acquired for residential accommodation. They remained in storage at the Museum until 9th November 2018 when they were re-instated in Palmers Green library with support from the Southgate District Civic Trust and the London Borough of Enfield.
The re-dedication service will be held at Palmers Green Library on Wednesday 30th January at 11am.The service will be held inside the library and can be accessed via the street level door or alternatively via the ground floor entrance should you require the use of a lift. Everyone is welcome to attend the ceremony without booking a place, however if prospective attendees could e-mail Jane Maggs from the Southgate Civic District Trust (firstname.lastname@example.org), this would be helpful.
