Last week, Dan saw the very best of Suffolk when he played an active part in the Framsden War Memorial re-dedication service at St Mary’s Church. The war memorial in Framsden, near Debenham, was recently restored to its former glory following its original dedication in 1921 in memory of the young men from Suffolk who laid down their lives during the Great War. Whilst half of the funding for the restoration work of the memorial was provided by the War Memorial Trust, Framsden Parish Council and local residents also pulled together to raise money to contribute to some of the costs. The service was very well attended, and guests present included Colonel Neale Moss OBE of Wattisham Airbase, along with Lord Tollemache and standard bearers from the Royal British Legion.
Dan would like to commend David Whitmore, trustee of the local charity group Framsden Fundraisers, who put in so much hard work along with local residents to organise and pay for the restoration of the monument, which stands as a fitting tribute to the bravery of those men who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
