The Staveley Remembrance Association hopes to restore the Parish Memorial and Garden of Remembrance to their former glory. We are working in partnership with local councils and funders and would very much like to hear your views and ideas on what we hope will be a suitable commemorative project for the centenary years.
We have a number of ideas of our own but would really like to know what you think before any proposals are drafted. You can complete the form on-line by clicking on the link below.
