Meeting will change to the Third Monday of the month

The Polish War Memorial at Spring Close


The dedication of the new Polish War Memorial took place on Saturday 23rd September, 2023. This was the culmination of lots of hard work by several villagers, (co-ordinated largely by Ian himself), the Parish Council, and representatives of the Polish living history group, "First to Fight", who commemorate the 1st Polish Paratroop Brigade. The event included all day activities, largely run by the "First to Fight" Group, and we hosted many visitors to the village, including some from Poland, and some VIPs from the Polish Community in the UK.

Polish TV, local BBC stations, along with www.rutlandandstamfordsound.co.uk/  covered the event, other media was invited. 

We did not advertise this widely but of course we hoped that the village will turn out to welcome our guests and honour the memory of some very brave men who spent time in Easton on the Hill during WW2 and fought bravely in Operation Market Garden in particular.
