First published in News

A war memorial will be officially unveiled in Eglwyswrw today (Sunday), to coincide with the centenary of the Great War.

Up until now, the north Pembrokeshire village did not have a memorial to commemorate its fallen.

The community council’s heritage committee has been working tirelessly for more than a year to make sure all the necessary preparations have been made so the village could have a memorial it could be proud of.

It stands six feet high and is made of slate stone with a granite plaque bearing the names of the 24 men who lost their lives during the First and Second World Wars.

A dedication and unveiling ceremony which will be carried out by the Bishop of St Davids, the Right Reverent J Wyn Evans and Mr Stephen John of Shrewsbury at St Cristiolus Church on today at 10.30am.

After the service there will be refreshments served in the Old School where local historian Heather Tomos will be displaying an exhibition of photographs and information about the fallen servicemen.

A warm welcome is extended to all.
