Burton Overy 100 Year Memorial Service
Following a service at St Andrew’s Church remembering the fallen from the village, a number of the congregation went outside to see a new memorial bench. This bench was part funded by Harborough District Council and the rest came from a generous donation from a family with past connections with the village.
The family gave funds in memory of the late JF Bolton Carter (surgeon Lieutenant, RNVR) and JM Bolton Carter (nee Keliher) (WRNS, Bletchley) who lived in Burton Overy from 1960.
Rev Kim Ford dedicated the bench and children placed poppies in sand bags either side of this new memorial.
A fitting tribute to those we do not forget.
