Press Photography: Crewe’s Municipal Square Renamed
Shortly after the Armistice Day service held in the Municipal Square, Crewe a short ceremony took place to officially rename the Square as Memorial Square. Leader of Cheshire East Council, Cllr Michael Jones unveiled a plaque to commemorate the renaming and also unveiled a poppy themed memorial. We were on hand to photograph the proceedings.
After the unveiling a set of specially commissioned whistles were sounded by dignitaries in remembrance of the whistles sounded in the trenches of The First World War.
