A statue to commemorate the Unknown Soldier, a Tommy from the First World war, was unveiled at 9.30am on Friday 3rd August, 2018.

It is just outside the library.

In attendance were the chair and vice chair of Maldon District Council (MDC), and town councillors  Vanessa Bell, Neil Pudney and Nick Skeens

Members of the Burnham Royal British Legion were also there, despite not being invited because MDC wanted an ‘intentionally low-key unveiling’.

Similar statues are being erected all over the country.
