War Memorial Village bungalows officially opened
Published: 5 August 2022
We had a fantastic time at the War Memorial Village in August celebrating the official opening of the new bungalows and community garden.
The ribbon to the gardens was cut by special guest and fundraising superstar Finley Skinner.
The seven-year-old had been raising money for the War Memorial Village charity for two years by selling poppies and raised a whopping £2,500! His hard work even landed him an audience with Prime Minister Boris Johnson! Colonel John Wilson OBE DL, Councillor Chris Poulter, Councillor Harvey Jennings and Derby Homes Managing Director Maria Murphy also gave speeches during the opening ceremony.
It was a fun packed day of activities and food live entertainment, even Lance Corporal Derby (the Derby Ram) got to join in with the festivities. We want to thank all of you who came down and helped make it a huge success.
