Hunstanton war memorial dedication after facelift

Glorious sunshine and clear blue skies greeted those who attended a public dedication service at the Hunstanton war memorial which has had facelift.

The memorial, in the Esplanade Gardens, has been completely cleaned with a new garden area surrounding it thanks to the generosity of a family in the town.

The funds to pay for the improvements came from the family of the late Mrs Jean Huggett, who died in September last year, and her family were present at the service of dedication, organised by Hunstanton Town Council and the Royal British Legion, on April 20.

Her daughter Gwen Dennard said Mrs Huggett had loved the town and was very proud of all the Armed Forces.

'She wanted somewhere lovely for their families,' she said.

Work on the memorial has included a garden area, new seating and re-landscaping as well as cleaning the stone itself. Plans are now being made to rededicate Hunstanton's war memorial.
