[size=78%]Thank you for contacting us about the bombing during the Second World War on Cavendish and Saffron Hill Road.[/size]
We already have permission from the Church of the Nativity to install the War Memorial to commemorate the six civilians killed in the attack. It is proposed to fix it to the side of the Church on Cavendish Road just above the door.
The latest version for the War Memorial is attached. It is going to be A4 in size and stainless steel because it would last longer.
Three people have responded to the appeal in “The Leicester Mercury”. One was going by the area and saw the bombs dropped. Another went out for the day despite her objections to return home to a bombed out building. The third was in one of the houses that was destroyed in the attack. Taken to the temporary morgue and by fate or chance, found to be still alive!
The Church is planning a Service of Dedication to be held on Sunday, 20th August. The Morning Service starts at 10.30am. You are most welcome to attend.
We are hoping to mount a small exhibition of pictures of the bombing in the School Hall of the Church over the weekend of the service.
