TOMMY - LAVENHAM REMEMBERS
"Tommy" is now on guard in The Market Place, Lavenham. Behind him is the Royal British Legion display of one wooden cross poppy for each Lavenham soldier lost 1914-1919.
The evocative depiction of a World War One "Tommy" has been funded by popular subscription from the people of Lavenham.
Because this year sees the centenary of the signing of the Armistice that led to the end of WW1 there was an event in The Market Place on 11th November. The event included choirs, poetry reading, a Roll Call of The Fallen of WW1, Last Post and more. It was followed by free light refreshments served from Little Hall courtesy of Lavenham Parish Council.
The event, which attracted over 400 people,was organised and run by volunteers from a variety of organisations in Lavenham.
