Readers of this blog will be well aware of the Parish Council’s great project to restore the village War Memorial to its former glory with a new goddess Nike to replace the figure that was lost in a car accident many decades ago. This terrific project in time for the World War 1 centenary commemorations is a project the Parish Council and its supporters can be truly proud of. Much of the funding has been raised by donations from Horndean residents and businesses with NA Curtain Walling contributing a very welcome £5,500. Robbie Welsch, Director at NA Curtain Walling and local resident along with the Parish Council invite everyone to view the scale model that will be used to manufacture the final figurine.
This will be on display at Merchistoun Hall from Friday 25th April 2014 at 2pm for a week. The Parish Council are still seeking contributions and if you would like to be a part of the history of the renewal of this statue then please contact the parish council for more information on email@example.com
