Spalding to receive Royal Visit from HRH The Duke of Kent

His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent will visit Spalding on Wednesday 13 March, to attend the dedication service of the new WWII memorial at Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens.

After a short service at the Parish Church of St Mary and St Nicolas, The Duke will head to Ayscoughfee to unveil the new memorial in the Peace Garden, funds for which have been raised by the Spalding WWII Memorial Committee.

The Committee, which is chaired by South Holland District Council chairman Cllr Rodney Grocock, also contains service veterans, staff from Ayscoughfee Hall, other district councillors and local business leaders and passionate members of the public.

The £70,000 needed for the design, creation and installation of the memorial was fundraised over the last few years through contributions from local companies, community events and collections and donations from members of the public across the district and beyond.

The memorial will contain 117 names of men and women of Spalding who served their country and were killed in action during the Second World War.

Members of the public are welcome to attend Ayscoughfee Peace Garden on the day, and are encouraged to arrive from 10am ahead of the unveiling.

Cllr Grocock said of the event: “We are delighted that His Royal Highness is visiting South Holland to open the Spalding WWII Memorial, which is the culmination of years of dedicated hard work by individuals and organisations across the district.

“We are looking forward to welcoming The Duke to the beautiful grounds of Ayscoughfee, and to celebrating this important new memorial with those who have helped to contribute towards this success.”
