Memorial ground to receive regular maintenance


Filed: Wednesday, 4th April 2018
By: Staff Writer


West Ham have announced that the memorial garden in Green Street is to receive weekly maintenance.

The small plot, situated where the entrance gates to West Ham United's former home ground once stood is currently in the centre of a building site and as such, has been vandalised on several occasions since the club moved to Stratford in 2016.

However that should no longer be a issue with an announcement from the club today that the garden - into which a large green plastic dustbin was thrown last week - will be monitored and maintained on a weekly basis.

The site is home to a number of memorials to deceased supporters whose ashes were either scattered or buried on the site of the former Boleyn Ground prior to the club leaving the area.
