War Memorial

In February 2018 we had great pleasure in handing over a cheque for £1,000. This was for the War Memorial Restoration Fund. The Memorial is situated in St Mary’s Churchyard in Calne.

A re-dedication service took place in May of that year with Lord Lansdowne carrying out the unveiling.

Odette’s grandfather served in the Royal Navy at Dunkirk in the 2nd World War, so this was something very close to her heart.
