On the 11th November the Bishop of Ludlow conducted a ceremony of dedication for the War Memorial in St Mary's churchyard, Bucknell. Sylvia Meredith had visited the club as our guest speaker back in March to tell us about the campaign to raise funds to create a granite and slate memorial outside the main doors of the church. The villagers, including relatives of the dead, felt the need for an outside memorial that can be seen at all times by locals and the many visitors who come to the area. The church service and dedication was a very moving event with seventeen children from the local school each placing a cross to commemorate one of the men of Bucknell who gave their life during two world wars. Rotarians Paul Barrett and Bruce Morgan were invited to attend the ceremony and placed a wooden cross on behalf of the club.
