100 years ago there was an airfield/relief landing ground in Marsham, between the Church and Allison Street, known at the time as ‘The Whites’.
A Memorial Plaque has been ordered which will be placed near the Church, overlooking the original site, which we hope will be unveiled in the near future. This will be to remember the pioneering airmen of WW1 who flew from Marsham.
Cllrs Bob Parke and Lesley Willcocks are keen to see this project come to fruition and the cost of the Memorial can only be covered by the generous donations of local businesses and individuals.
Therefore, should anyone in the village be interested in helping us with any amount of funding, we would be most grateful and would love to hear from you. We will list contributors in a future Newsletter.
