A place for remembrance

It was the fervent wish of the late Chairman, Reg Wilkinson, and the committee of the Brixton and District Branch of the Royal British Legion to give a commemorative bench to Brixton in recognition of the long history of the branch, which had been active since 1927.

Brixton Parish Council was approached by the Branch with an offer of a bench to commemorate that there had been a thriving branch of the Royal British Legion for nearly 100 years, recognising that it had made an important contribution to the life of the village over the years.  Furthermore, the bench provides us with a constant reminder to remember the lives of those who did not return to the village in both world wars. 

The Parish Council has located the seat by the bus stop at the entrance to Elbridge and planters have been added to complete the sense of space around the seat.
