Update On Memorial Bench

In May Head Wench Sue R and Second in command Suzanna travelled to France for some meetings with the team from Lochnagar Crater. The purpose of the trip was to check on the progress of the memorial bench and finalise details for the sponsored walk in September.
They had hoped to see the memorial bench being set up onsite ready for the blessing ceremony on 1st July, but the builder had not quite finished . So we they will have to wait until July to see the bench along with every else. The bench has been handmade by Yorkshire carpenter Vinnie Felstead, a friend of Lochnagar. We are extremely grateful to Vinnie for his time and skill in making this amazing memorial.
At the end of June a few wenches including Sue R and Suzanna will make the journey again to take part in the dawn service at Lochnagar on 1st July. The bench will be finished and all set up for this and the Padre from Lochnagar will bless the bench. The ladies will be in full uniform for this event. It will be an amazing experience and we are so proud to finally have our first memorial bench in place.
