More than a hundred people turned out yesterday (Sunday 3rd) to witness the re-dedication memorial service at St Barnabas Church.

The church are the custodians of a war memorial on the corner of Pitshanger Lane and Denison Road.

Working with the Pitshanger Community Association, the Brentham Society, the Cleveland ward forum and the council's street contractors Murrills, St Barnabas organised the full refurbishment of the local war memorial in time for the centenary of World War One.

On Sunday morning (August 3rd), in the presence of Steve Pound (MP for Ealing North), Dr Rupa Huq (Labour parliamentary candidate for Ealing Central and Acton), several local councillors and well over one hundred parishioners and community members, the church re-dedicated the war memorial during a moving and poignant service.

The congregation gathered outside, and the choir sang the haunting Oculi Omnium as the vicar Justin Dodd censed the memorial in memory of the Men and Women who have given their lives for others in all wars.

As well as remembering those who fell in the Great War, prayers were said for all those currently living in conflict zones.
