Restoration of the drinking fountain on Lendal was the top priority of those voting in a poll conducted by the York Civic Trust. It was seeking to timetable several projects for its “City Enhancement Project”
The Civic Trust have said that they will ensure that the War Memorial on Acomb Green is renovated before the 11th November; the centenary of the end of WW1. The work will be part funded by the City of York Council.
A further £6000 will be needed for the drinking fountain restoration.
The other projects mentioned in the poll will be undertaken over the next few years as resources become available.
