“We Will Remember Them”

With the centenary of the end of the First World War approaching, Frampton Cotterell Parish Council have marked the occasion by installing a memorial bench by the war memorial in St Peter’s Churchyard.   Linda Williams, Chair of the Council, said “The bench is sustainably made out of recycled plastic and allows people to take time out to sit and reflect.  We wanted to provide a space for parishioners to be able to sit quietly and remember those that have given their lives for us.”

The Parish Council have also donated a new memorial noticeboard and a “There But Not There” Tommy figure which have been installed at the Royal British Legion on Ryecroft Road.  Edwin Jones, Chair of the Frampton Cotterell branch of the Legion said he was “thankful to the Parish Council for the fitting memorials which not only mark the centenary of the end of WW1 but also provide a lasting tribute to all those that have fallen in war.”
