About Us

The Friends of The Nicholson War Memorial have been established to preserve and enhance this unique structure. The building already has Grade 2 listed status and one of the aims of the Friends is to obtain Grade 1 status.

The Friends recently secured a £178,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant to renovate and carry out structural repairs to the Memorial.

The Friends are always looking for people who may be interested in joining us and helping with the upkeep of the Monument and helping with promotional or educational activities.

If you would like to get involved with the Friends of the NWM or indeed make a donation towards the memorial’s upkeep then please contact the Town Clerk, Mrs Julie Taylor on 01538 381271 (julie.taylor@leektowncouncil.co.uk).

The Friends of the NWM are:-

Mr Alan Brundrett, Mr Patrick Burke, Mr Ben Emery, Mr Brian Johnson, Mr Paul Morris, Mr John Povey, Mr Rob Povey, Mrs Julie Taylor.

The Friends would like to express their thanks and gratitude to Chris Sheldon and Rob Povey who have worked hard to get this website up and running and to Chris again and Brian Johnson of Three Counties Publishing for letting us use a few extracts from Chris’ books “In Name Only” and “Roll of Honour”.

We would also like to thank Leek Town Council for agreeing to fund this website for the people of Leek and the World Wide Web.
