The words in marble on the Vespra Boys cenotaph are an important part of its message.

The message needed to be legible so we would not forget.

Sandblasting before after1

Plaque in October 2013: before (l) and after sandblasting.

It was unclear why the marble plaque had to be touched at all because it had no structural issues.

    So this “restorer” just took a layer off the whole thing. He should have left the plaque alone.

    I agree, they should have left the whole cairn the way it was because there were no structural issues. Sandblasting is not restoration!
    Just another ‘bright idea’ from the FOSPP?

      We had the MNR’s approval and the Remembrance Day Ceremony went well. Everyone said how nice the restored cenotaph looked, including the MNR. What are YOU doing to help reopen the park? Your comments are becoming immature and childish. If you REALY want this park reopened than fight for it and do something positive! Your negative comments are not helping the cause.
      Thank You
