Mountsorrel Quarry donate memorial stone to Woodhouse WW2 Aircrew Memorial Project

March 4, 2021

Tarmac’s Mountsorrel Quarry has recently donated a large piece of granite to the Woodhouse WW2 Aircrew Memorial project. The stone will be used as a memorial to remember those who lost their lives in a Wellington Bomber Crash in World War Two.

Speaking of the donation, Trevor Warren, works manager at Tarmac said: “We are very pleased to have been able to support this project to give the community a place of remembrance.

“Supporting the communities in which we operate is very important to us, so we are proud that we could get involved with such a worthwhile project.

“I would also like to thank A V Squire for delivering the stone to the garden.”

Bill Clark, from the Woodhouse WW2 Aircrew Memorial project said: “We are very grateful to Tarmac for the stone which we plan to use as our memorial plaque, which will be located alongside the aircrew memorial bench.”

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Woodhouse WW2 Aircrew Memorial project have had to postpone their unveiling event until later in the year when hopefully restrictions will allow. The group plan to publish a commemorative booklet telling the story of the airmen and the tragic crash and look forward to the memorial becoming part of the village’s proud heritage.
