Yesterday Head Wench Sue R and Wenches Suzanna & Audrey travelled across to The Somme to check on the progress of our first memorial bench. So far the team at Lochnagar Crater, where the bench is being placed, have been very secretive. We have still not been allowed to see the bench. It is being placed today but we are not allowed to see it before the blessing ceremony tomorrow morning. The wait is unbearable, but we know it will be worth it. So we have been busy just settling into our accommodation and last night we went for a lovely meal with the Friends Of Lochnagar. There were about 50 people there altogether, it was a fab night.
Today we are very busy with finalising of the route and details for September’s sponsored walk. Then we have a fun afternoon of ironing on the cards…lots of uniforms to prepare for the ceremony tomorrow morning.
We will be at Lochnagar Crater from 6am tomorrow so if anyone is in the area and wants to pop along to support us with the blessing and dedication of our first memorial bench, please do. We look forward to seeing you there.
