Stockwell Memorial rotunda – Volunteer Day

Stockwell RotundaSATURDAY 23 MARCH – 9am to 4pm

  • SCRAPE PAINT OFF ! (so satisfying)
  • DO GOOD! (also satisfying)

The tatty old Rotunda at Stockwell – which has many Memorial themes in the design – is soon to get a much-needed refresh.

In order to prepare for the re-paint, the Friends of Stockwell War Memorial and Gardens in association with the London Mural Preservation Society have organised a special volunteer day.

They need to remove or brush down the old paint and seal the surface.

If you can spare some time – even if it’s just for an hour or so – please go along and lend a hand.

The Friends will provide all the equipment and there will be sandwiches and soft drinks for volunteers.

Since 1999 the paint design on the Rotunda has done a marvellous job brightening up Stockwell and deterring graffiti. It was opened in 2001 by Violette Szabo’s daughter Tania and actor Virginia McKenna, who played Violette Szabo in the film Carve Her Name with Pride.
