  • Part 1 is the restoration of the existing civic war memorial located inside Hindle House Community Centre.
  • Part 2 is a new blitz memorial plaque for the residents who were killed when Hindle House was bombed on 18th September 1940.
  • Part 3 is making available the history research relating to the 24 people listed on the memorial plaque. This will be via a website that would be accessible to local people, schoolchildren, historians and anyone else who would be interested.
