“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.”

Many thanks to everyone for making the Scarecrow Trail 2018 another super well supported village event.
The standard of entries was incredibly high so the voting was very close. First place by 2 votes was Gulliver's Travels in Rectory Road closely followed by Rapunzel in Lower Chapel Lane and by one vote in 3rd place was Peter Rabbit on Beesmoor Road.
I find it so fantastic that so many walk around the trail and it's so great to see people out and about during half term.
This year I have had no reports of vandalism to the scarecrows and that is more good news.
Many thanks to Jen Dunford and Village Action for their help in publicity and organising the walks.
Thank you to everyone who made donations to Christian Aid. A total of £150 was raised. If anyone else would like to make a donation please contact me, Sue Walters, 07767487531.
And finally a big thanks to The Parish Council and the staff at The Brockeridge Centre for giving out entry forms and maps and answering questions.
