War Memorial Dedication

Published: 21 January 2019

Members of the Parish Council would like to thank all those who attended the dedication of the Boer War Memorial yesterday. It was a really special event for our community and it was wonderful to have so many residents taking part. Special thanks must also go to Bloor Homes who made the event possible, to the Rev. Julie Humphries and the Rev. Vicki Atkinson for leading the dedication, Robin Mills for playing the Last Post, Jonathan Leese for cutting the ribbon to open the site, John Pettinger for researching the history of the memorial and all those from the regiments (past and present members) who came to show their respects and lay wreaths in remembrance of those who gave their lives.

The memorial and the area close around it is now open for all to enjoy.
