Also in attendance were local representatives Mr Evans (Royal British Legion), Mr Ed Hilditch (Burton & Neston History Society) and Mrs Jan Jones (Neston & District Chamber of Trade) to dedicate the bench.

Children from Woodfall Primary School helped to commemorate this solemn event. The Pastor, Mark Thomas, from Little Neston Methodist Church, conducted a short service before the bench was formally unveiled.

The Mayor said "After a dull start the day brightened and the sun shone on the group of invited guests and local residents who gathered to formally install the bench. We were delighted to be joined by our guests from Chester and Ellesmere Port, bringing together community representatives from our surrounding areas.

"It was also a pleasure to be joined by the children from Woodfall Primary School. This bench is both their future and a reminder of the horror of war."
