Lottery Funding Success

The Parish Council are pleased to announce that they have been successful in obtaining funding of £10,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The funding application was put forward by Councillor Joan Ward.

The money will be used to help restore the memorial gardens, which were laid out in the early 1920s and dedicated to the memory of local men who were killed in the First and Second World Wars.

Work is now underway and includes tree care, path repairs, provision of a handrail, repainting of the war memorial plaque and repairs to the memorial shelter roof. An interpretation panel is also planned. See photos of work undertaken so far.
