IFPC announces two new Tommy statues to be placed at the St Edmund & Mary Church in Ingatestone and The Church of St Mary the Virgin in Fryerning. The 4ft aluminium statue was made by veterans and people with disabilities at the Royal British Legion.
The statues will follow the yearly traditions of the poppies being put displayed in Ingatestone High Street and the churches. We want to continue the traditions of honouring the 80 villagers that did not return home.
The Tommy statues will be in place for the church services by 14 November 2021.
