The Council agreed support for a War Memorial at the Full Council Meeting on 26th March 2014 with the help of all our 3 previous councillors and there has been suggestions of locating it in the Sivill House Rose Garden. Funds need to be raised for the memorial itself as well as ancillary requirements such as plants, lighting, seating, access, security, which all need to be discussed. We are hoping that everything will be ready in time for the 75th anniversary of the Blitz on 7th September 2015.
