Parish Enhancement Programme
As many of you will know the Parish Council have been working hard during 2020 to enhance parts of the Parish.
Earlier on in the year a massive project took place to tidy up the allotments, this included three skips of rubbish which were removed, a new front gate, repairs to the stone wall and a number of allotments have been turned over ready for new tenants.
Tree Management Programme
The Parish Council have a duty of care to have in place a Tree Management Programme for all trees on Parish Council land. Once this had been completed by our tree surgeon he was commissioned to undertake the work and this has now all been completed. The Oak tree on the green and all of the trees in the cemetery were attended too.
The Polebrook & Armston War Memorial was professionally cleaned probably the first time since it was unveiled on 19th June 1920. It was unveiled by Lord Horne and dedicated by the Bishop of the Diocese.
It was dedicated TO THE MEN OF POLEBROOK AND ARMSTON WHO DIED FOR THEIR COUNTRY IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-18. However, two entries were added after the 2nd World War of 1939 - 1945.
The memorial is described as being unusual and consists of a single-stepped octagonal base, surmounted by a low square-sectioned plinth, on which rests the pad of a slightly tapering cylindrical column. It supports an urn topped by an orb, on which stands a copper cross, the three terminals of which are fleurs de lis. Incised side panels are set into the plinth, bearing the inscription in black-painted lettering. The memorial base stands on a shallow road island.
