GEED Area Plan

 

The Kirton in Lindsey War Memorial stands on land in trust, for the charity known as The War Memorial and Garden of Edward Elmhirst Duckering. The charitable aims are 'to maintain and protect the town's War Memorial and surrounding garden'.

 

The Mayor, Cllr Pat Frankish, would like to see the area - which extends to the boundary of the land designated as the Green - developed into a peace garden. The Mayor’s Charity for 2019-2020 could be chosen to be The War Memorial and Garden Of Edward Elmhirst Duckering and become the beginnings of the fundraising to pay for establishing the garden.

 

In discussions it has been suggested to Cllr Frankish that there could be two semi-circular beds of Peace Roses with a wide path in the centre. At this stage ideas and concepts are welcomed, along with the overall view on if there is support from the town behind the creation of the garden.

Would you like to see a Peace Garden near the War Memorial in honour of those who lost their lives in service to our country?

Initially the Town Council are looking for views on the project so feedback is really important.

Please send your views, whether you support the idea, how you suggest it could be developed and any other comments you may have about this proposal to the Town Clerk.
