Bradwell B workers help restore important WW2 monument
A team of workers from Bradwell B have given up their time to maintain a historic landmark in the area.
Structural Soils and Scott Parsons Landscaping, both working on the Bradwell B project, volunteered to help carry out maintenance work on the iconic WW2 memorial which sits near the entrance to the site.
The area was once an airfield for an RAF station with concrete runways, hangars and ancillary buildings, some of which are being used by CGN and EDF Energy for storage related to the Bradwell B project.
Following agreement from the Parish Council, the Bradwell B contractors scrubbed the tired slabs clean and replaced the shingle that surrounded the monument, tidied the greenery and painted the plane.
Mike Guiry, Bradwell B site manager, said: “From our site we can see the visitors who come to pay their respects to airmen from the area who lost their lives in WW2. It has been rewarding to be part of a community project that is so loved in the area.”
