The MDCE Covid Memorial sculpture is soon to be installed on the grass opposite the library clock (see artists impression in the image here). A stainless steel plaque bearing the words: ‘Covid Tribute Memorial, dedicated to all NHS, Care and Key Workers in Market Drayton.’ will accompany the sculpture which was created by artist Kevin Nutley of Concept Stained Glass. The memorial was commissioned and financed by Market Drayton Community Enterprise.
The MDCE is lobbying for a local ‘Green Burial’ site close to Market Drayton – possibly in the Tern Hill area. Eric Davis, Secretary and trustee of the MDCE said “In a typical green burial, the body is not cremated, It is simply placed in a biodegradable container and interred in a grave-site to decompose fully and return to nature. Eric would be interested to hear from anyone supportive of the idea of having a local site. See his contact details below.
