Great War Centennial Corner


The Great War Centennial Corner was created in 2019 to honour the Fallen from the First World War and comprises a replica First World War tank, a bronze 'Tommy' statue and a centenary poppy bench.

Armistice Day services

The local community now hold a memorial service every Armistice Day to pay respect to the Fallen. Photos can be found for the 2019, 2021 and 2022 services.

Lest We Forget

Deaths in the First World War amounted to some 1 million from the British Empire, with the addition of over 2 million wounded, many of whom succumbed to their injuries or were left permanently disabled. We should also not forget the military personnel and civilians who died while clearing the battlefields, especially in Flanders and the Somme, due to detritus and munitions remaining after the War had concluded.
