Volunteers training session

Cenotaph Challenge Launch

The Cenotaph Challenge officially launched for volunteers, custodians and interested bodies at two events in Dec 2013 at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery.

The Cenotaph Challenge is a Preston Remembers project that is looking to map, audit, undertake maintenance work and do research on the names listed on Preston’s memorials.

The events were advertised as drop in sessions for people who wanted to get involved in the project and meet other like-minded people. People who attended had interests varying from military research and photography to restoration and fund raising. There was representation from community groups including the sea cadets and guides, interested members of the public and people who have already done extensive work on their local memorial.

The events resulted in the recruitment of our first 25 volunteers have undertaken training in Jan and Feb 2014.
