305th BG sign restoration

The 305th BG sign that used to hang by the entrance to driveway to the churchyard has been getting rather worn over the years and was replaced earlier this year by a new oak sign for the church services.

The 305th BG sign has been restored by the 305th BGMA and now proudly hangs next to the church tower, ready for the Remembrance Service on Sunday.
