Shepreth Parish Council has produced a memorial plaque to honour those who fought in the First World War and returned home.

The board – which is on display at Shepreth Village Hall – contains a list of 33 names compiled by the council after months of research, but there is space to add any names which may have been left out.

Shepreth Parish Council vice chairman Richard Handford said: “The memorial commemorates those who fought in the First World War and survived – a fitting way to show that they have not been forgotten. We also have the memorial to those who died.

“It is a tribute to those who went to war and were fortunate to return to their families and our community.”
