WW1 MEMORIAL CEREMONY
To commemorate and honour the eight local men who died in WW1 and who are named on the town’s war memorial, Carterton Community Centre held a short ceremony of remembrance.
At 11am on August 4th ,100 years after the outbreak of war, as a mark of respect, a memorial plaque dedicated to each man was placed against the eight mountain ash trees which have been planted in the grounds of the Community Centre.
The Service of Commemoration was attended by representatives of the Royal Air Force, Royal British Legion, Royal Air Force Association and Royal Naval Association together with cadets from a number of organisations.
Members of the public were invited to attend with plenty of space available outside the Community Centre’s grounds bordering Sorrel Way and Thornhill Close.

Proceedings were conducted by a member of the Community Centre’s Trustees and the local clergy.
