A dedication service is to be held at Shoreham Airport Community Memorial

A DEDICATION service for the Shoreham Airport Community Memorial will be held next week, following the completion of restoration works.

The memorial, installed by Gerald Spicer in 1997, was falling into disrepair, so a new trustee management team was set up last autumn to take on the project.

Headed up by Anne Bean, wife of the late Shoreham RAFA Airshow founder Don Bean, the team has refurbished the site, in front of the terminal building.

The B26 propeller has been overhauled, a paved walkway has been created, two wooden planters have been placed each side of the south face, the Brian Brown memorial stone has been re-sited and a similar stone for Don Bean has been placed.

The dedication service will be held on Wednesday, June 11, at 11.30am.

People can use the area for a moment of reflection and remembrance.
