Proposal for an Edinburgh War Memorial Garden

Michael Blackley in today's Edinburgh Evening News reports on plans from the Council to re-launch their proposal for a war memorial garden for Edinburgh. It would commemorate the servicemen from the City who have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan in recent years...

City leaders are preparing to launch an attempt to revive stalled proposals to create a new memorial to Edinburgh's fallen war heroes.

The city council is to start a fundraising drive to take forward its plans for a garden of remembrance in Princes Street Gardens dedicated to members of the armed forces from Edinburgh.

It is to seek donations from members of the public and private benefactors to revive the scheme, expected to cost at least £500,000.
