   PLEASE HELP-Raising money for items to commemorate the Centenary of World War 1    12 January, 2018

This year is the Centenary of the first World War and indisputably a vital time for all to think about the tremendous sacrifices made by so many people in this Country to protect citizens all over the world. Pamber Parish Council has made the decision to purchase two items to commemorate the end of the War as a permanent dedication to those who selflessly dedicated their lives fighting for freedom, as a reminder for future generations about the sacrifices made in the past. The first item will be a WW1 bench which will be placed in Pamber Park, specifically designed to mark this centenary. A second memorial shall also be allocated to Little London. The Council have committed to buy the bench and will be putting in a substantial sum to cover this but we are asking anyone within the community who is interested in such a worthy cause to donate anything, no matter how big or how small, to enable us to purchase a second commemorative item for the South Ward. We are all husbands, wives, sons, daughters or grandchildren of those directly involved in a time that shaped our future world, so please help us in preserving the memory and teaching future generations about those brave men and women who gave so much. Thank you all.
