AXMINSTER: Firm’s festival tribute to World War One heroes

Wednesday, 21 May 2014

Axminster-based Westcrete Precast Concrete Ltd has announced that its Axe Vale Festival pitch this year will include a World War I memorial garden. But help is needed from members of the public. Westcrete’s Mike and Lilian Thoennissen said: “As a local company who employs local people we try our best to support the local community and we feel strongly that we wish to involve you in helping to pay tribute to your loved ones and we therefore invite you to bring in copies of photos, we will take a photocopy in our office whilst you are there, of any family members who were killed in World War I. “If you haven’t got any photos, the following information can be put onto the poppy petals we are making; regiment; date killed and where, if known. “This information would also be put on the back of any photos. “We plan to laminate photos and the poppy petals and hang them onto a memorial tree on the show stand, giving everyone in the community a chance to come and see the tree and at the same time contribute to sharing in the thanks we give to those who gave their lives.” More information is available by visiting the company at its Stoney Bridges, Castle Hill, base or by phoning 01297 32002.
