Local War heroes remembered

In the park next to the church here in Farinton there is a new Memorial Garden, commemorating the 55 men of Farington who gave their lives in the First World War. It was completed just recently, when I was invited to bless the silhouette of soldiers that now frames the memorial stone on which the names of the fallen are commemorated. Relatives of those men were present for the occasion as was the Mayor of South Ribble, Councillor Mary Green and Deputy Lord Lieutenant Allan Jolley.
