The tribute to all those from the town who lost their lives in the Great War will be unveiled on Remembrance Sunday, November 9

Volunteers in Ilfracombe have begun work on a mosaic memorial as a lasting tribute to men from the town that died in the Great War.

Under the watchful eye of Mortehoe mosaic artist Kim Sayer, volunteers began carefully placing the pieces to fill in her design, which will be unveiled at Runnymede Gardens on Remembrance Sunday, November 9.

It simply says ‘Ilfracombe Says Thank You’ - which was the theme of the World War One 100th anniversary commemoration weekend in August last year.

The picture shows the North Devon landscape edged by the sea and the rocks, seagulls and poppies.

Kim and her team have been helped by some of the children who took part in the parade last year.

The finished memorial will be unveiled by Donnella Woolmer and her family. Donnella is the daughter of Ted Ingram who unveiled the unfinished piece last Commemoration Day.

She will do it in honour of all the Ilfracombe men who lost their lives in World War One and her father, a WW2 Normandy veteran who died in September.
