The monument commemorates C. R. Wippell who donated land to be used for the sports field.

A movement has been started locally to erect a suitable memorial in honour of the late Mr. C. R. Wippell in Rowden Park St. George. It is known that Mr. Wippell donated this ground to the St. George Sports Association as a centre for Sport in this town. As it is the intention of the Association to construct a grandstand in the near future, it was thought the time was opportune to erect some sort of memorial to Mr. Wippell and already £20 have been received in donations to this fund.
