Dolgarrog War Memorial Garden WW1 Centenary Regeneration

The Dolgarrog community is very proud of what has been achieved at the Memorial Garden following a concerted fund raising effort and work to regenerate the site in time for the WW1 Centenary Remembrance.

The site has undergone extensive refurbishment with the not to be missed giant sculptured poppies standing guard around the Memorial. The work is taking place in three phases, with the first phase having been completed in time for this year’s Remembrance Day Service.
