It was just over a year ago that the exhibition of the Lendy Memorial in the Walled Garden was made the subject of a controversy by an unsolicited commentariat questioning the rectitude of its continued public display. (See previous articles of 17th June, 22nd June,17th August 2020 and 19th January 2021).
At the conclusion of discussions with the Council and all interested parties, it was finally, and with universal approval, agreed that the Memorial should remain where it is. Our past Chairman, Alan Doyle, kindly undertook to write about the history of the Lendy brothers and to make his work freely available at the Embroidery Gallery. The resulting booklet is co-authored by Nick Pollard, the historian who many will know as the Chairman of Sunbury and Shepperton Local History Society.
