Pershore Town Council has decided to commission a stained glass window to be installed at the cemetery chapel, as a permanent memorial to those who served at home and abroad in whatever way, to ensure the future freedom of not only the people of this country, but of Pershore in particular.

The window, which is to be funded mainly by public subscription and fundraising, will depict images from the First and Second World Wars, as well as showing Pershore at peace, today.

STOP PRESS - We have now started a crowd funding opportunity - please follow the link below if you are interested in donating in this way. If you can add your name when giving you will be entered into our Book of Remembrance.

Plastics - Pershore Town Council has resolved that it will make every effort to reduce the plastic it uses by, as a first stage, ensuring no plastic cups or straws are used.
