At a ceremony on Thursday 5th March, the newly restored Shell Memorial in Broomfield Park was officially unveiled.
Performing the unveiling were pupils from nearby Broomfield and Hazelwood Schools. Colin Younger of the Broomfield House Trust thanked a number of organisations and people who were involved, including The Enfield Society who donated £800 towards the cost of the work. The Heritage of London Trust were able to support the project and were represented by Nicola Stacey. Bambos Charalambous MP (Enfield, Southgate) was also present.
The Shell Memorial records the purchase and opening of Broomfield Park in 1903 and the newly restored inscription reads:
