Two Walls of Honour plan

Newbiggin & North Seaton Branch of the Royal British Legion is applying for a grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund and Northumberland County Council Community Chest Grant to erect two Walls of Honour in Newbiggin Memorial Park which will have the names of the fallen inscribed on them.

Members of the branch will be checking all the plaques around the community collecting names and it is planned to hold a number of drop in sessions in Newbiggin where residents can check the lists and add any family members.

It is hoped to have the walls installed in time to have them blessed as part of the memorial as part of the Town Centenary Commemoration of the start of the First World War.
