Very nice, it reminds me of the one in Stubshaw Cross
How absolutely lovely, and what a fine tribute. Respect and thanks to all concerned. Hindley seems to be a very close community and has always done itself proud, from Christmas lights to poppy displays for Remembrance Day and now this beautiful memorial garden. Well done Hindley.
Is the garden at Stubshaw Cross a Memorial garden or a Heritage garden or both? The people of Hindley must be very proud of this majestic memorial to all the armed services.
Its good to see they have a strong iron gate and fence to protect it.
Well done to all concerned.The Bird was my local when I lived in Hindley,spent many a happy hour and money in there.Will definitely go and have a look and a pint.
What a wonderful way to remember the Armed Services. I must look out for it next time I am on the bus. A nice place to sit and reflect.
This is lovely, I will have a look next time I'm in Hindley. Like Irene says, we'll done Hindley.
Excellent photo of the Hindley garden of remembrance.
Read that the army chiefs of the USA and UK are now to hold peace talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan, why couldn't they have done that before and most likely saved those many lost lives and disabled army personnel?
Cyril , we shouldn’t be going anywhere near these places let alone sending our brave soldiers there . These are ancient and highly intelligent cultures who should sort things out themselves . They end up blaming us not thanking us . Sorry for going sideways .
The trouble is those cultures do not give way and never will. Their 'religion' if you can call it that is too steeped in what they believe and what it allows them to get away with in the name of Allah. I suppose that is a simple explanation but they are a very complicated culture. We don't know how lucky we are compared to them ....
