Bealings who is recorded in currently available census
The memorial is maintained by the Parish Council on behalf
of the village, and the committee members each take turns
in maintaining and clearing the area around the memorial.
On 20th June 2007, it had a lucky escape when a large branch
of the elderly willow tree adjoining the memorial, broke off
during a thunderstorm and landed right on top of it.
Luckily, nothing was broken, and the picture shows the clearance
crew from Elite, having just finished tidying up and carting
away the remains of the severely lopped willow to the left.
