About the memorial: The controversial memorial is a metre-high framed "light box", illuminating an image of five soldiers leaving the village and, from another angle, listing their names to show they did not return. It features a wreath and five sparrows, with words from the Bible, Matthew ten to 29: "Let not one sparrow fall which He does not see." The memorial was built by Nocton artist Cliff Baxendale in consultation with the Diocese and received £2,000 of funding from artsNK, a group co-funded by North Kesteven District Council and Arts Council England. The former county secretary of the Royal British Legion Allan Burgin said: "Nocton's design is very modern – but so what? It's beautiful and war memorials do not have to all be engraved marble."
