Louth and Horncastle MP joins community as part of Somme Anniversary Exhibition

MP for Louth and Horncastle Victoria Atkins planted a memorial tree at Alford Manor last week as part of the Somme Anniversary Exhibition which she opened last year.

Ms Atkins said: “It is quite fitting that it is a wet and windy day as it was so often in the Western Front trenches.

“And it is a further commitment by local people to the memory of those citizens who served in that dreadful war.”
