A memorial garden in Barnoldswick, Lancashire, is set for a makeover with the West Craven Area Committee looking to raise £40,000.

The project will help to improve the Second World War gardens which have been neglected recently after being opened 60 years ago to commemorate those lost during battle while serving the country.

Plans have been unveiled and include the removal of the current dwarf wall and its replacement with metre high black metal railings to improve views around the current site.

The memorial stone, which is adorned with the 59 names of those from the area that died in the war, will be cleaned and a strip of grass will be paved over to prevent the problem of dog fouling.

Debbie Taylor, of Pendle Council, told the Lancashire Telegraph: "The Jubilee celebrations present an opportunity to invest in the gardens to create an inviting and peaceful environment to encourage users to enjoy the space as a place to reflect."
