Ledbury Recreation Ground

Ledbury Town Council manage the Recreation Ground on behalf of the Town. The Recreation Ground was conveyed to the Townspeople of Ledbury for safekeeping in memory of the eighty five men of this parish, who gave their lives in WWI. In July 2012 a commeorative Plaque was unveiled by the Mayor of Ledbury after a memorial service conducted by Reverend Howard Mayell. The Royal British Legion along with Ledbury Army Cadets provided the Standard Bearers.  

Unfortunately the plaque was damaged by vandals just a week later. To the rescue came Abbotsfield Funeral Directors who very generously set the plaque into a large piece of granite and re-errected the stone at the Recreation Ground. This was all done as their donation to the Community of Ledbury. The returned plaque was re-blessed by Reverend Howard Mayell and supported by Lloyd Meredith as standard bearer. A big thank you to Abbotsfield for your generosity and much valued contribution to this community.
