2021 Ringwood War Memorial Rededication - 15th August
On Sunday 15th August, members of the community are invited to join Ringwood Town Council, the Royal British Legion, representatives of the armed forces and Churches Together to commemorate the rededication of Ringwood’s War Memorial, 100 years after it was erected in memory of those who had given their life during World War One.
The memorial went through a programme of conservation last year including repairs to the WWI and WWII Rolls of Honour, repair and re-pointing of damaged stone, treatment of the bronze sword and cleaning of the stone. This was funded in large part by a grant from War Memorials Trust.
The event, which will take place in the War Memorial Gardens, on the corner of Mansfield Road and Christchurch Road, will start at 11:45am with live music from the Ringwood and Burley Band. The outdoor service of rededication, which will also be live streamed to the Ringwood TV Facebook page, will follow at noon with introductions from the Town Mayor, Cllr Tony Ring and Town Clerk, Chris Wilkins. The Rev. Terry Roberts will lead the short service which will include readings from the Bible, the Last Post, prayers and the laying of flowers on the Memorial.
The Act of Remembrance 2020 was live streamed on Sunday 8th November. Members of the public were asked not to attend the service which was attended by local dignitaries and invited to enjoy a moment of reflection at another time. Special thanks were extended to Rev Roberts, Rev Trick, the trumpeter and British Legion.
