    My name is Martin Heys. I’m not sure if this is the right place for this email to be sent. My apologies in advance if it is not.

    We have just spent a very enjoyable weekend staying in Parkend. We were there for a folk music gathering centred around the Fountain Inn. During the weekend we did some walking around the forest and the village. The village is lovely with it’s railway, pubs and cafe’s. We found all the people to be most friendly and helpful also.

    However one thing that I was quite saddened by was the war memorial placed just inside the gates of the Memorial Hall. The list of those who lost their lives during World War One is situated behind a wheelie bin situated inside the gates and in front of their names. During the time when so many people are remembering the tragic events of one hundred years ago it seems particularly poignant that a bin is placed next to your village memorial.

    I do hope this can be changed and that those who lost their lives can be remembered the way they deserve to be.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my email.

    Best wishes

    Martin Heys
