We will remember them

We will remember them

This Sunday (November 8th), Remembrance Sunday will be marked across the country but in a different manner to what we have become accustomed to due to Government Covid-19 guidelines.

This Remembrance Sunday has a particular significance as it marks 100 years since the Cenotaph was installed, and nearly 10,000 people gather there each year to show their respect.

Despite the restrictions for attending events in person, we can all still play a part in ensuring we mark the occasion and pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces.

From magnificent town memorials to simple airfield plaques, East Anglia is dotted with reminders of its historical military connections.

At Hopkins Homes, we are committed to enhancing the communities we’re part of and leave a positive legacy from our built environment.

Within this, we are proud to support communities seeking to repair and conserve their war memorials through the Hopkins Charitable Fund.

The grants given out so far have helped with work such as cleaning, re-pointing and painting. All work is carried out under the supervision of the War Memorials Trust which ensures it remains in line with best conservation practice.

These war memorials include Huntingdon and Walsoken in Cambridge; Woodbridge School, Sudbury, Beccles and Brandeston in Suffolk and Hanworth and Beeston next Mileham in Norfolk.
