Joan Humble, Chair of Blackpool Civic Trust, enthused "We are pleased to be the first group to survey all of our war memorials. Whilst not an easy task we were more than happy to undertake it. Being able to share in the success with the local representatives and discover the ways in which the project can move forward is particularly exciting.

I want to pay special thanks to Mike Coyle who has spent many years identifying Blackpool's war memorials. Mike is a member of Blackpool Civic Trust and also the War Memorials Trust. His advice and the training we received through Civic Voice were invaluable"
