Current project – A Community Remembers
In the corner of St Peters’ Church, Bethnal Green, are boards, carrying the names of the 168 men of the locale who perished in that conflict. As a 21st century community we want to erect a permanent public memorial to these men, to do this we have established a just giving and Facebook pages as we would like this act of remembrance to come from the very heart of Bethnal Green in which they lived. They were ordinary men, leading ordinary lives, let’s not forget them.
