Rededication of our War Memorial – Sunday 8th October 2017
You are invited to be a part of history and attend the rededication of our war memorial on Sunday 8th October 2017 at 2.00pm.
The event will be special because it will be 95 years to the day since the Duke of Devonshire unveiled the war memorial at the original dedication service on 8th October 1922.
The event will also mark the completion of a £10,000 Heritage Lottery Funded project, which has enabled us to restore the Memorial Grounds, which were laid out in the early 1920s and dedicated to the men of the parish who lost their lives in the Great War 1914 – 1918. Work undertaken includes tree management, shrub and tree planting, repainting of the war memorial plaque, repairs to the memorial shelter roof, a new handrail and new signage. See photos of work undertaken.
Please come along to this historic event at the war memorial, Long Lane, Lea (near Lea Gardens).
