Coun Robert Webb, Chairman of Bardney Group Parish Council, said: “The council has been considering various and suitable options to commemorate the end of the First World War for quite a while.

“We were delighted to find the WWI bench which clearly depicts those who served and also discovered the further design honouring those whose who fought in the WW2.

“As Bardney has strong military links and played a role in the war effort, it was fitting that the second bench was also purchased.”
