About the memorial: Spalding Guardian. Published: 13:00 Wednesday 07 December 2016 Each of the men named on Lutton’s war memorial is recognised in the village’s new Poppy Memorial. The new memorial consists of five poppies from the original Tower of London exhibition, which were donated. A further 20 were commissioned and mounted on a steel frame constructed by Lin Secker and staff of Secker Engineering Holbeach. Fundraising events and donations enabled the Friends of St Nicholas Church at Lutton to re-frame existing war memorabilia and provide a new brass dedication plaque. The church was full for the service of dedication arranged by the Friends and led by Father Jonathan Sibley. Standards and escorts were Gedney Drove End and Long Sutton RBL, Long Sutton RBL Ladies’ Section, RAFA and Royal Lincolnshire and Royal Anglian Regiment Spalding branch. WW2 Burma Star recipients Douglas Marsh and Alan Barkes were present. The Last Post was played by Stefen Dicks, the reading was by Air Craftsman Connor Phillips, poems read by Rob Mitchell and Donna Dicks and the address by Linda Harding on behalf of the Friends. A retiring collection of £208.87 will be divided between Long Sutton and Gedney Drove End RBL branches
