Protecting Our War Memorials

Thurlow Park Councillors Clare and John Whelan have been at the forefront of action to prevent the further desecration of our war memorials and other heritage from scrap metal theft.

John tabled an all party motion to Lambeth Council urging officers to take action after serious metal thefts from Lambeth and West Norwood Cemeteries. Meanwhile, Clare is seeking a solution for better regulation of scrap metal dealers through the Environment Board of the Local Government Association.
