Help needed for Forest of Bowland memorial
3:54pm Tuesday 4th March 2014 in News
CLITHEROE Youth Forum is seeking more people for a research project into the 25 pilots who lost their lives after crashing in the Forest of Bowland and the Ribble Valley during the Second World War.
The ‘We Shall Remember Them’ project was set up last year after a two-and-a-half-year funding quest.
The group was awarded £27,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund last year to create memorials for 25 British, American, Canadian and Polish airmen. The group plans to place a memorial stone at Langden Brook, create a remembrance book, a Braille book, a film about the crashes and place five stones in and around the crash sites.
For more information or to get involved in the project call organiser Mel Diack on 01254 823012.
