A TREE FOR THE BATTLE OF THE SOMME

Victoria Atkins Member of Parliament for Louth & Horncastle planted a memorial tree at Alford Manor last week as part of the Somme Anniversary Exhibition which she opened last year.

“It is quite fitting that it is a wet and windy day as it was so often in the Western Front trenches” she commented “and it is a further commitment by local people to the memory of those citizens who served in that dreadful war.”
