The Parish Council has decided to support the Royal British Legion’s ‘Silent Soldier’ campaign to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. The Silent Soldier is a life size silhouette of a soldier returning home after his tour.
The Parish Council has agreed to donate £1,000 towards purchasing a Silent Soldier for installation somewhere in the village, from now until the end of December 2018.
The Silent Soldier could be placed anywhere visible such as village greens, parks, playing fields and gardens, out in the fields, on buildings or perhaps by the side of the road. The Parish Council has initially thought of approaching Rev Stephen Fletcher about locating it in St Mary’s Church yard.
