Living tree sculpture unveiled in memory of the fallen
11 November 2022
A living tree sculpture in memory of the fallen has been unveiled at Upton, thanks to a community project by Upton Parish Council.
The 12-foot-high war memorial has been sculpted from a tree stump, from a design by children from St Luke's Primary School in Duston.
It was unveiled on Armistice Day during a ceremony attended by the Royal British Legion, local scouts, armed service veterans, and around 200 members of the local community
It was very moving to have so many young people there from St Luke’s school, together with their families, all taking it very seriously and remembering family memories of involvement in many battles across the globe. I would like to give a special mention to Cllr Andrew Holt, the Vice Chairman of Upton Parish Council, who came up with the original idea.Chairman of the Council, Cllr André González De Savage, who attended the unveiling
