Ermington Parish Council has recently announced the completion of restoration works to the village War Memorial, in advance of commemorations of the centenary of the Great War. The memorial has now been restored to its former glory and will continue to provide a fitting tribute to the local men who gave their lives during the First World War.
The stone memorial, which is located within a Remembrance Garden in the centre of the village has been thoroughly cleaned and repointed, and the previously worn, gold engraved lettering has been repainted ensuring the names are once again clear and legible.
The project was organised by Parish Councillor Grant Elliot, and the work undertaken by Westcountry Stonemasons. The project was funded through the Devon Remembers War Memorials Restoration Grant, with additional money provided by the village fund.
Communities wishing to apply for funding to restore their local war memorial can find more information on the Community Council of Devon website.
