Update on the re-erection of the Birmingham John F Kennedy memorial

Planning permission was today granted for new John F Kennedy memorial in Birmingham on the corner of Floodgate Street and High Street Deritend

Oliver Budd has now been given the go-ahead to start ordering the Smalti mosaic from Italy.

The target date for unveiling has now been agreed as 29th May 2012 – the 95th anniversary of the birth of John F Kennedy.

The quote for the right hand panel has been agreed as “A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on”. This quote was agreed by Oliver Budd and the Irish Welfare Information Centre.

The re-erection of the Kennedy memorial is being funded by Ballymore , the property developers behind the office development enabled by the new road layout at St Chad’s Circus.
