The centenary gardens at Guide Post and West Sleekburn now have plaques commemorating 100 years since the beginning of WW1. It has taken us time to source the right sized stones for the plaques and I would like to thank the efforts of Northumberland County Council staff who identified suitable stones and sited them at the gardens. The garden at West Sleekburn is still to be planted after the new building work for the Village Hall, but the one at Guide Post, opposite Guide Post Medical Centre is now complete. I hope everyone agrees that the plaques are perfectly displayed and provide an appropriate focal point in the centenary gardens.
As usual memorial services are taking place at the War Memorials at Choppington on Friday 9th at 11am, Guide Post and Stakeford on 11th at 11am and our Parish Councillors will be joining others in laying wreaths in memory of those who died in the line of duty.
