Unveiling day

Unveiling the War memorial

What an amazing and emotional day. When I arrived early the stone had already had it’s box removed which left me to give the stone a quick wash.

After a brief introduction by the mayor the flag was removed by two of the local school children.

A cornet player played the last post and after 2 minutes silence he then played the revaille.

The school children sang, the vicar blessed the memorial, poppy seeds were scattered and wreaths were laid.

There was a wonderful turnout including representatives from the Royal British legion and my family travelled from Kent to see my work being unveiled.

I had put my everything into this carving and everyone loved it.

I don’t think I will ever get over the pride I feel knowing that I created this.
