Over the past 6 weeks and after a long incubation period, a renovation project managed by the Parish Council has been taking place on the Memorial Green in the centre of Waltham on the Wolds.

The renovation has included two new smaller Memorial Stones in keeping with the existing central stone, the moving of the Chapel Memorial Stone and installation of three Welsh slate plaques commemorating those from the village who lost their lives in both World Wars. The path has been extended to the flag pole and the avenue leading to the Memorial stones opened up. The whole project will be completed later this year with a planting project to enhance this commemorative area.
