Blessing for war memorial

Have your say

A BISHOP will bless the latest addition to a war memorial in a South Yorkshire village.

Bishop of Doncaster Peter Burrows is to visit St George’s Church, Woodsetts, Rotherham on Sunday, to bless the new cross on the village’s war memorial, along with a restored World War One plaque.

He will also bless a new plaque bearing the names of those who died in WWII and recent conflicts, including Private Gavin Elliott, from Woodsetts, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

Bishop Burrows said: “I look forward to sharing in the dedication and congratulate all who have worked so hard and contributed financially.”
