UNTIL reading the report in the Guardian on the removal of the wreaths from Northwich War Memorial, I was not aware that they would be removed after the service.

I say thank you to Tony Rogers for his observation.

I placed two wreaths, one for my comrades, Korea War veterans, and one for 1874 Northwich FC.

At no time was I made aware that they would be removed and placed on another site.

I would ask those responsible just what work needed to be carried out on the memorial as the site is in a pristine condition, and I wonder why wait until the dedication time for whatever work needed to be done.
