A parish council in Derbyshire recently held an opening ceremony for a project funded through the Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund.
Croxden Parish Councillors were delighted to officially open the WW1 Bench and Silent Solider at St Giles Church, Croxden on Saturday 10th July 2021.
Due to Covid restrictions, the opening was delayed and not all donors could attend, but the Parish Councillors were delighted to be able to thank all those who could attend for their kind donations that made the project a success.
Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund, Uttoxeter Knights, Cheadle Lions, Alton Towers, Uttoxeter Rotary Club and Mr David Rowley, were all involved with making funds and land available to ensure that the residents had somewhere to sit and reflect while walking within the Parish.
Cllr Paul Bean said: “It is a great pleasure that we can thank the donors in person for their help and to let them know that residents are thrilled to have such a special place to sit”
A spokesman from Tarmac commented: “We are proud to have been able to support Croxden Parish Council with this project which clearly meant a lot to the local community”.
