A rededication of the war memorial at Howle Hill took place on Sunday, 14th November following its relocation from the now redundant St. John's Church to its new location at Howle Hill Cross-roads.

Two years after the closure of St. John's church, the memorial was kindly moved to its new location by Mr. Mervyn Freeman, who organized the move and provided his services free of charge.

Friends of St. John's organized the rededication service, led by Revd. Owen Williams. The rededication coincided with the 3:00 pm. Remembrance service for those lost in battle and was attended by representatives of Ross-on-Wye British Legion.

The congregation included Jessie Plumb, who at 93 years of age was the oldest Howle Hill resident in attendance. Many who were there are relatives of those whose names are listed on the memorial.

Pictured to the left is Mrs. Joyce Roberts, who laid the traditional wreath during the service.

Below, the congregation can be seen during the lowering of the British Legion Standard, marking the beginning of a two minute silence in memory of those who have died.
