Halstead: Project to honour village's war heroes
11:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
A community is embarking on a project to honour and remember its war heroes 100 years later.
Earls Colne Parish Council has been awarded a £6,000 grant to renovate the village’s war memorial at St Andrew’s Church, in Church Hill.
Part of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant will also go towards research which aims to record the details of every villager who died in the First World War.
Parish council vice-chairman Ian Sparks, who is leading the project, said: "It is wonderful that with the help of this grant we can enhance the appearance of our War Memorial and give us a chance to trace details of our men."
