June 4th each year marks the anniversary of the tragic death of 12 young USAF men as they crashed their plane close to Garvestone, whilst on their way to fight in World War Two. They died shortly before D-Day and the people of Garvestone have worked together to erect a memorial n their honour. The memorial is in the field behind the Village Hall. Each year we gather there to hold a short memorial service and to remember them, and the sacrifice they made to win our freedom today. All are welcome.
