A memorial has been unveiled dedicated to the men of Ilfracombe who gave their lives in World War One. At a ceremony yesterday (Sunday) morning a standing stone memorial and mosaic with the message Ilfracombe Says Thank You 1914-2014 was revealed for the first time at Runnymede Gardens. There was a short address by the Mayor, Councillor George Squires and Town Crier Roy Goodwin, before the memorial was unveiled by Donnella Woolmer daughter of the late Normandy veteran Ted Ingram - and blessed by Canon Michael Rogers. The mosaic was designed by local artist Kim Sayer of Magical Mosaics and inspired by Roy Goodwins idea of holding an Ilfracombe Says Thank You commemoration event in 2014 to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One. Organiser Sue Garwood said: The memorial is more beautiful than any of us could have imagined and I am sure the townspeople will be proud. Today, after almost two years, we have finished our tributes to these men, but we will never be able to repay the debt we owe them. After the unveiling, participants paraded to the town war memorial for the traditional Remembrance Sunday service.
