The final touches are being put in place ready for the grand unveiling of one of Ripon’s historic memorials.

The Marquess of Ripon statue in the Spa Gardens will be officially unveiled on Monday following its clean-up operation.

Along with the War Memorial the statue has been part of a £10,000 project to clean and restore the statues which have become weathered over the years.

The War Memorial was finished in time for the Remembrance Day Parade and Service.

The Marquess will be unveiled at lunchtime on Monday, November 21.
