Arthur Martin-Leake Commemoration

St. Johns Church High Cross Thursday 30th October 2014

This will  take place outside St John the Evangelist Church, High Cross at the Lychgate between 10.30am and 11.30am.

Thundridge Parish Council (Chair: Cllr Russell Parkins) are organising the laying of the Victoria Cross Commemorative Paving Stone in memory of Lt-Col. Surgeon Arthur Martin-Leake V.C. and Bar at the entrance gate to St John the Evangelist Church in the village of High Cross.

This is thought to be the first of only very few Victoria Cross events in Hertfordshire and one of only 353 similar events throughout the UK to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Supporting the Parish Council is Puller Memorial Church of England Primary School (Headteacher, Mrs. Tracey Keddie) whose pupils have created an exhibition of artwork and memorabilia that will include the names of High Cross villagers who served in the First World War.
