By Lynn News Reporter


Pupils from Churchill Park Academy placed wooden soldiers at the front of St Faith’s Church in Gaywood on Friday to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Rev Karlene Kerr, team vicar at the church, said the figures are decorated with names from Gaywood’s war memorial and names of the students who placed them, to demonstrate that the soldiers are remembered by young people.
