A commemorative community wood is to be created in Arnie Broughton Walk, Sutton Bridge, in tribute to members of the armed services who served their country.

Shirley Giles, from the Friends of Sutton Bridge Playing Fields and Open Spaces, said they want to install three picnic benches – one each dedicated to The Royal Navy, The Army and The Royal Air Force.

The Friends are now applying for grant aid to complete the project, but need letters of support from villagers.

Mrs Giles said: “If anybody has a relative who served in any of the wars – not necessarily World War One or World War Two, but any of the conflicts – we need a letter from them to say they support our aims.”

For more information on the project, or to offer support, please contact Mrs Giles on 01406 351562.

• The Friends have previously raised money for 15 benches, three picnic tables and adult fitness equipment for Memorial Park.
