A commemorative carpet of wreaths...
19 December 2018

On Remembrance Sunday, townsfolk, community groups and businesses take part in the Act of Remembrance at the Lychgate War Memorial, located at St. Mary Magdalene Church.  Part of that act is the laying of wreaths and in previous years, following Remembrance Sunday, wreaths have not lasted past the turn of the year.

In a bid to preserve the lifespan of the wreaths and to keep live Remembrance throughout the year, whilst at the same time allowing St. Mary Magdalene Church the opportunity to prepare for Christmas, the wreaths have been moved to the Royal British Legion War Memorial at The Glade.

Next year, as well as having a Veterans Memorial Seat we also intend to have a structure to display and hold the wreaths upright, however, this year we hope those passing appreciate the commemorative carpet of wreaths surrounding the Royal British Legion War Memorial.
