War memorial thanks

Share this article

Can I, through your newspaper, say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended the War Memorial Fund Coffee Morning at Carlton on Saturday 3rd March and helped us raise £387.

Added to the £75 given by people who could not attend, this makes a very impressive total of £462. The war memorial was defaced last March when thieves stole two of the bronze name plaques. The memorial had only been restored two years earlier.

Thanks are due to the trustees and staff at the Carlton Centre, and the kind volunteers who gave up their time to help, and to those people who donated raffle prizes and cakes. Thanks also to Ian Franklin for the loan of his projector screen which enabled us to show the DVD of the war memorial rededication.

The War Memorial Fund is on-going, so if anyone wishes to donate then please contact the parish council on: 01909 541127.

Thank you all once again.

Val Bowles

District Councillor,

Carlton Ward
