The poignancy of round­about plough

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - LES WHITE Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Cres­cent Build­ing Sup­plies Cres­cent Pa­rade, Hilling­don

FOL­LOW­ING up ea­gle-eyed Bill and his photo of the plough on the round­about in Swake­leys Road, Ick­en­ham, last week . The plough is not a piece of or­na­men­tal re­cy­cling, more a re­flec­tion of re­mem­ber­ing a very sad time 100 years ago and the loss of so many lives ( Colour­ful echo from the ru­ral past, Gazette, Au­gust 20). The round­about was planted ear­lier this year as part of the trib­ute to those who per­ished dur­ing the First World War.

The plough, gen­er­ously sup­plied and in­stalled by Hilling­don Coun­cil, is part of the com­mem­o­ra­tive cen­te­nary dis­play, in­clud­ing the poignant dis­play of wild flow­ers and pop­pies.

Sig­nage in the round­about states that it is spon­sored by my company, Cres­cent Build­ing Sup­plies, and the signs say, ‘We will re­mem­ber them’.
