The new street furniture is already catching the eye of locals and was installed by the Rotary Club. It's on the town's main street outside the United Reformed Church.

They gave the ultimate sacrifice, they gave their lives in absolutely horrific conditions and they did that for our benefit so that we at least can live in peace. It has not go to be forgotten.
