Memorial thanks

I would like to say thank you to the person(s) who placed the war memorial verse ‘They shall not grow old........’ on every war memorial gravestone in Milton Cemetery.

I visited my grandfather’s gravestone today – Colour Sergeant Home Guard, Stanley F Hook who died in the raid on Weston on June 30, 1942 – to place my usual poppy and was very pleased to see this lovely gesture.

This must have taken some considerable time and I would like to say that if help is needed in keeping this going in the future, I would be most willing to offer my services.

Thank you.

Mrs A Baxter, Nailsea
