Call to open up city centre’s war memorial 

 

A call has been made to improve the visibility and accessibility of the city’s memorial in Guildhall Square. 

The cenotaph – in the heart of Portsmouth -commemorates service personnel and civilians from Portsmouth who have died in past conflicts.
Cllr Stephen Morgan has written to the council requesting action.

In the letter he writes:

“Portsmouth’s strong links with the armed forces community is one of the city’s many strengths.

As residents of this great city, we can be rightly proud of our tradition and history associated with our naval heritage and contribution the city has, and continues to make, to the defence of our nation”. 

With regeneration and developments happening across our city centre, it is hoped the council will take action.

Stephen added:

“As a result of these development opportunities I hope the council can find a way to make this important cenotaph in the heart of our city more accessible and visible in tribute to those fallen”.
Do you have a view on how this can happen? Get in touch with Stephen.
