A memorial fit for a Queen

Crompton Councillor Louie Hamblett has written to Oldham Council leader Councillor Amanda Chadderton to ask whether a cross-party group of councillors could be created, with the task of making recommendations to this council for a truly fitting memorial to Queen Elizabeth II?

The late Queen was our nation’s longest serving monarch and visited our borough more than once – even holding a garden party here in Oldham. A considered and collaborative tribute on behalf of this council is only fitting and Councillor Hamblett said: “I’m sure many members would want to play an active role in delivering this.”

He added: “I look forward to hearing back from the leader on this, as her late Majesty was surely our greatest Monarch. Now, after seeing 70 years of great change and bringing our nation to where it is today, a memorial from us – proud of her life and work – will truly be a statement of how grateful we are for her.”
