VE Day 8th May 2020
Chairman of Barlestone Parish Council
Mr. David Burchell,
Laid a wreath at the memorial sculpture in Barlestone Cemetery. Other members of the Parish Council attended at a safe distance in line with Government guidelines during the lockdown.
The Sculpture named 'The Circle of Time' was unveiled and dedicated on Saturday 10th August 1966 by T.G.M. Brooks, JP, Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, and the Rev. Len Carpenter, Vicar of Barlestone.
The sculpture, situated in that part of the memorial gardens, to the left of the cemetery gates, celebrated and emphasised the last 50 years of peace by contrasting it to the previous forty-six years which were marked by two world wars and considerable social and political upheaval in Europe.
