The damage caused to the War Memorial Fence by an unknown heavy vehicle taking the corner into Green Close too tightly is to be repaired by the Parish Council – who will meet the cost, likely to be in the region of £100.

Examining the fence, Councillor Stephen Mather said:

“I had a look at the three bent posts this morning and I was surprised to see 40mm solid square bent like that. It could be a costly affair replacing the posts and concrete foundations.

I could try the easier and much cheaper option of straightening them up by cutting and welding them. I don’t think the concrete foundations have been disturbed too much and they still have a tremendous hold into the ground.”

Following the repair that Stephen will attempt, there will be some remodelling and refreshment of the whole memorial and its garden in the new year.
