Re-Dedication of Royal British Legion Benches at Redlynch Playing Fields
Recently the two RBL memorial benches at Redlynch Playing Fields were re-dedicated with a simple service at the playing fields.  The reason for the re-dedication was due to the benches having to be removed to a new location. The service was conducted by the Rev Len Lunn who is the RBL Branch Chaplain.  Also in attendance was the Parish Council Chairperson Jo Horbury.  Donald Anderson was also in attendance as RBL Branch President.  One of the benches is dedicated to his father Major Nigel Anderson MC.  The Military Cross being won during action in Norway. The move was necessary due to an upgrade of the play area taking place.  Who could argue with this, as a new cable slide for the children was being installed. The benches were moved into the central area of the play zone and as such are now more in use with family gatherings.  The cable slide has proved highly popular with the community children and one or two grown up children!!
