The new Roll of Honour board for the War Memorial Garden has now been delivered. It will be installed in a few weeks’ time and unveiled in a special Dedication Ceremony which will precede the usual Armistice Day service on Saturday 11th November.
The ceremony will start at 10:45am, when the President of the Ruddington Branch of the Royal British Legion, Ken Hicks, will unveil the board. Our Methodist and Baptist Ministers, Simon Rose and Sam Hackett, will then conduct a short Dedication Ceremony before the two minute silence at 11am and the playing of The Last Post by the Army Cadets’ bugler.
The memorial board was partly funded by grants from Nottinghamshire County Council and Rushcliffe Borough Councillors’ Community Fund, with the remaining cost being met by the Parish Council.
