Sunday saw the dedication of the new War Memorial on the village green which was unveiled by Mr Matthew Pritchard. Over 100 villagers were present at what was a very moving ceremony. Mr Pritchard read out the names of all those who had returned from WW1 and then the names of the four who did not return from WW2.
This is the only new War memorial to our knowledge in the UK. Those who follow Downton Abbey will have seen during the recent episode that there was also an unveiling of a war memorial. Colwinston can be proud of this new feature in the village which will be the focus for us all in the future for remembrance Sunday.
