Springbourne Homes has been making headlines across the Midlands with the region’s press and media highlighting the story of chairman Adrian Burr’s two-and-a-half year quest to renovate and relocate an abandoned First World War Memorial.
The Memorial, now occupying pride of place in a new Peace Garden at Hornsey Rise on Bosworth Road, Wellsborough, is dedicated to the 380 members of the NATSOPA printers union who were killed in WW1.
It was officially rededicated on Monday March 29th – exactly 100 years after it was first unveiled at the former NATSOPA Memorial Care Home – and news of Adrian’s amazing act has now spread far and wide.
BBC Midlands Today filmed the rededication ceremony with top reporter Amy Payne delivering a two-and-a-half minute piece for both Midlands Today and East Midlands Today.
Local radio stations BBC Radio Leicester and Fosse 107 were also very keen to cover the event with both carrying the story along with interviews with the Springbourne chairman.
The Leicester Mercury, Coventry Evening Telegraph and Nuneaton News gave full coverage to the occasion too and it also featured on the In Your Area and the Building Design and Construction websites and in The Graphic magazine.
