Armed Forces Day Celebrations in Bramley


Last Sunday the Friends for a War Memorial for Bramley joined forces with Tesco and local residents to celebrate Armed Forces Day and raise money for the Bramley War Memorial.

The brilliant staff from Tesco were on hand all day to paint faces, sell handmade cupcakes and raffle off prizes. Cllr Caroline Gruen, Chair of the Friends for a War Memorial for Bramley, attended the event along with other members of the group to show their support for Armed Forces Day.

It is estimated that the memorial could cost up to £100,000 and campaigners are doing all they can to raise the necessary funds. Civic architect John Thorp MBE has agreed to act as design consultant for the structure and the group are now making real progress. Bramley Park has now been agreed as the site for the memorial and preliminary designs are being drawn up before a full public consultation.
