Made for the Millennium
Managed By: Icon Here Millennium Managers
Description:
To find all those things that were made to commemorate the Millennium in 2000. Anything with a specific Millennium plaque can be included.
Expanded Description:
As the year 2000 approached, many people thought it would be great to commemorate the event in some way. In most countries lots of debate took place about how to mark this rare occasion. Ideas were diverse and ranged from big national events and grand projects, to small communities wanting some local commemoration.

In the end, as well as the events around the new year itself, a huge number of lasting memorials were made for the Millennium by all sorts of groups. The purpose of this category is to record and visit all these things and see how they are doing several years after they were created.

Any Millennium memorials can be included here. They can range from new gardens that were created; wayside crosses; village clocks; new seats; statues; time capsules; entire buildings; anything and everything, as long as it was made to commemorate the Millennium. The key requirement is that there is a plaque of some sort to record that it is commemorating the Millennium.
