Mayor of Tenby, Councillor Sue Lane receives a cheque for £2500 from representatives of Tenby Lodge
Plans to erect a new memorial wall in Tenby’s War Memorial Gardens received a boost from Tenby Freemasons this week.
To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, Tenby Town Council are erecting a new memorial wall in the gardens to record almost 100 names that had been left off the monument.
The names have been meticulously researched by former town councillor John Griffiths and include armed forces and civilian casualties from both World Wars and those who died as a result of service in the Armed forces since 1945.
The project has been part financed by the town council, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and public donation and Mayor of Tenby, Cllr. Mrs. Sue Lane was overwhelmed this week to receive a donation of £2500 toward the project from the members of the nearby Masonic Hall.
In addition the Freemasons have also pledged a further £500 per year for the next five years for the upkeep of the gardens and its floral displays.
Said Cllr. Mrs. Lane, ‘This is a tremendously generous gesture by the Tenby Freemasons for which we are very grateful. They say that the Masons are not a secret organisation but an organisation with secrets. What certainly is not secret is how much they care for the community here in Tenby and are prepared to get involved.’
