   War Medals found during the Parish Council Clean Up Day    22 March, 2016

Thank you to everyone who helped with our BIG tidy up, over 50 people join in filling over 130 bags and retrieving numerous items too big to be put in a bag!

The most unusual find this year, along the river, was a locked tin containing war medals, at least 2 of which belonged to the same person, Leading Seaman Oliver James Read (J.17997)
Born. Norwood, London 1896

We have no idea who they belong to or how they got there, so if you have any information please get in touch.
