Ayscoughfee Hall’s historic war memorial was looking spick-and-span in time for Remembrance Sunday.

Thanks to sponsorship from local companies Buildbase, DRH Builders, Gibbs & Dandy, DNA Scaffolding and Blue Slate Company, the Grade 1 listed memorial was given a thorough clean.

Coun Gary Taylor, South Holland District Council’s portfolio holder for community, said: “We are extremely thankful to these companies for kindly supporting the clean-up.

“The memorial provides a lasting legacy for those who sacrificed so much and I’m delighted that it was looking spotless for the Remembrance Day service.”
