A PLACE to honour those killed in the First World War has been set up in the heart of Stratford.

Shops in the Minories Courtyard between Henley Street and Meer Street will be selling crosses which can be planted in a garden around its border. The names of relatives who died in the war can be written across the front of the cross.

The town’s centenary poppy campaign has been sponsored by Bill Moore’s Windows and Doors and Bill himself will plant the first cross having lost two great uncles in the conflict.

Crosses cost 50p and will be available from all Minories shops from Monday (August 4) – 100 years to the day Britain declared war on Germany.

Money raised will be donated to the Stratford branch of the Royal British Legion.
