Great turn out tonight to launch our Poppy Trail leaflet and to salute our ‘Men on the Memorial’ who gave their lives fighting to protect us. The leaflets identify local men who fought in WW1, where they lived in the town and a short description about them. These quality leaflets are FREE of charge and have already generated much interest. They will be available from tomorrow from the Council offices, the library, the Station Heritage Centre, Royal Station Hotel, schools and other local outlets. Pick one up!
At the property where they lived at the time, we have asked residents to display a laminated poppy so that you can see for yourselves where these brave men lived.
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM!
