People living in a small north Norfolk village are fundraising for a new war memorial.

Residents, businesses and organisations in Felmingham have been contacted for support and £650 has been raised towards the £2500 needed.

Keith Dally, Priest-in-Charge, United Benefice of King’s Beck, which includes St Andrew’s, Felmingham, said: “As part of our commemorations of the First World War, we are currently fundraising for a new war memorial to be erected in the churchyard.

“For some unknown reason, Felmingham seems to be the only village in the area that doesn’t have an external memorial, just a Roll of Honour Board inside the church.

“We are hoping to have it in place in time for a visit by the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham James on August 5.

“Local stonemason, Nick Hindle, has been commissioned to carry out the work, which will cost just over £2,500.”
