Lest We Forget

The Parish Council in association with the Scarecrow Festival and St Mary’s Church has placed a new bench in St Mary’s graveyard.  The bench commemorates all those who died during the World Wars and is a fitting memorial to their sacrifice.

The bench was paid for by the Scarecrow Committee and the permissions from the Church Authorities was obtained by St Mary’s Church. The ordering and placing was undertaken by members of the Parish Council.

The bench will be dedicated this Sunday after the Remembrance Service.
