In partnership with our developer Lovell, Pobl Group have donated over £300 to The Royal British Legion’s Blackwood and District Branch, to help fund its Remembrance Day service.
The service took place on Saturday 12th November, at the War Memorial at Chartist Garden Village, on the former council office site in Pontllanfraith.
On the day, attendees participated in a parade and two minutes silence, before taking part in a wreath laying ceremony. Following this, the service moved to St Augustine’s Church, where refreshments were provided.
To help fund the event, Lovell and Pobl donated £300, which went towards refreshments, and £37 to be spent on wreaths, which then went towards the Poppy Appeal.
To further honour Remembrance Day, Lovell installed poppy hoarding and put up lamppost poppies at Chartist Garden Village.
Retaining and providing access to the war memorial was a key part of this development. It is something the Council, Pobl and Lovell were all committed to achieving. We are honoured that so many members of the Royal British Legion’s Blackwood and District Branch, and members of the wider community, joined us here today for this remembrance service. Pobl means people, and we always strive to work closely with the local authority to ensure that our developments of new homes respect the local community and meet their needs.
