As part of our war memorial restoration project the war memorials at Huthwaite, Titchfield Park, Hucknall and Jacksdale will be cleaned and restored in time for Remembrance Day.

Two Tommy memorial benches are also being installed at Sutton War Memorial to assist visitors to the cemetery and war memorial.

Cllr Andy Gascoyne, ADCs armed forces champion, veteran and Selston Councillor said:

“We are very proud to have installed the poppy lights across the District as part of this year’s Remembrance Day commemorations. It is a lovely way for us to remember those that gave their lives.
“Our five year war memorial restoration programme continues with the restoration of Huthwaite, Titchfield Park and Jacksdale war memorials. Sutton war memorial will also be cleaned before Remembrance Day. In recent years the Council has spent over £20,000 on war memorial repairs and restoration.”
