During this last year, the ECA set up a small working party, led by Gordon Pound to work on the installation of a fitting public memorial to coincide with this year’s centenary celebration of the end of the First World War.
This has resulted in the placing of a Commemorative Stone, which has been kindly paid for by Barrie and Carole Morgan. The location was carefully considered, the first choice being in the small garden outside St Mary’s Church Hall. The Church Council was approached and have subsequently agreed this. The stone will be laid on November 1st. This year’s Remembrance Service falls on Sunday the 11th and service will not be held at the stone, but inside the Church. All are welcome to attend, and leave the Church to gather beside the stone during the two minute silence, to place wreaths.
There will also be room to place individual poppies, which we hope will be available from the Shop.
A steel plaque will be set into the stone and will read:
TO THE MEMORY
OF EVERTON RESIDENTS AND THEIR
FAMILIES AND FRIENDS
WHO CONTRIBUTED TO KEEPING THIS
LEST WE FORGET
