A group set up to ensure that the centenary of the start of the First World War is commemorated in Horncastle received a welcome boost when Bill Aron presented a cheque for £200 to Civic Society Chairman Mary Silverton.

The money, donated by the War Memorial Hospital Committee, will allow the project to move forward, pending a hoped for Heritage Lottery Fund grant. The Civic Society is acting as the “umbrella” organisation for a number of parties including U3A, the Royal British Legion, the Lions and St Mary’s Church.
