Midweek Visiter - - News -

CLIVE Har­ris from Hightown, has re­searched all the names on the Hightown war memo­rial over a five-year pe­riod and held an ex­hi­bi­tion of his labour of love, in re­mem­brance of the end of World War One, 100 years ago.

The Mayor of Sefton, Coun­cil­lor Dave Robin­son vis­ited and said he found the ex­hi­bi­tion fas­ci­nat­ing.

The dis­play, which also in­cluded mil­i­tary World War One items loaned by the peo­ple of Hightown, at­tracted an es­ti­mated 300 vis­i­tors.

Clive said “All the long hard work, a trib­ute to those listed on the war memo­rial, was worth it in the end and I greatly ap­pre­ci­ated the sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
