25th August 2014 - Fun Day Cancelled

We regret that, due to the heavy rain which has already fallen, and the prospect of more heavy rain during the afternoon, todays's Fun Day has been cancelled in the interests of public safety.

4 August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I. This was commemorated on Sunday 3 August by a parade and service at 11.00 am which also re-dedicated the memorial following the improvements to the landscaped area.

The Memorial acknowledges the men of Croft, Huncote and Thurlaston who gave their lives in the Great War:
