Dedication of a Field of Remembrance in Littlemoor on Friday 25th October 2019 at 1200

In 2016 Littlemoor applied to the Lottery fund for regeneration money to be used for community projects. The local children put forward an idea for a war memorial which has evolved into a Field of Remembrance, which is situated in a field off Icen Lane opposite the ‘mushrooms’ aka the Jurassic Roundabout.
Steel benches representing both world wars, two interpretation panels and two metal soldiers are already in place and a Royal Oak is to be planted in the centre of the field at a later date.
The Dedication will be carried out by Richard Drax MP, or by the Lord Lt of Dorset and Weymouth Town Mayor.
On return to the Community Centre there will be an unveiling of a Memorial in honour of the WW1 ANZAC troops who were stationed at Littlemoor.
Refreshments will be provided at the Community Centre on completion.

The plan is to assemble at Littlemoor Community Centre, Canberra Road from 1030. (Access from Canberra Crescent). There is NO PARKING at Icen Lane. All participants will be transferred to and from the Community Centre by bus.
