A new plaque remembering villagers who died during the First World War has been installed in a park.

Sible Hedingham Parish Council has overseen the introduction of the plaque which is dedicated to eight former employees of Rippers, which was a well known joinery company based in the village.

An old plaque remembering the employees who fought and died in the Great War had been destroyed several years ago.

But thanks to the parish council and three businesses, a new one has been installed to ensure the soldiers are not forgotten.

Chairman Ron Volkwyn said: "About a year ago a resident called Roy Piper approached us and told us the old plaque had been destroyed. He asked us if we could replace it and we were more than happy to help.

"Unfortunately, it has taken a bit of time and Mr Piper is no longer with us. But we are pleased it has now been replaced and are grateful to the businesses who have helped.

"We have put it on the original site of Rippers which is very poignant."

Harvey Darke Funeral Service, Owen Engineering and Seven Seas Marble all helped out with the installation of the new plaque, which is set up in Poppy Park.
