Veteran’s appeal a £5,000 success

Have your say

A veteran has raised £5,000 for a new war memorial in just a few months.

Bill Carline, aged 92, who served in World War Two, wants a memorial to mark the sacrifices made by 19 soldiers from Frecheville.

He has since been inundated with donations.

The great-grandfather of 10 said: “I never expected this kind of response.”

It is hoped the memorial will be in place by next May, the conflict’s 70th anniversary.
