World War 2 victims to be commemorated on Penge War Memorial – please help fund raising

Penge Partners, Penge Forum, local historians and local councillors are raising money to install plaques bearing the names of approximately 400 men, women and children who died in Penge in WW2 put up in their honour.

The WW2 plaques will be sited on the railings around the town’s War Memorial, outside Penge Recreation ground.  We have already put up plastic banners which give an indication of the final memorial.

Penge was badly affected by bombing during the 1939-1945 war and the new memorial will commemorate civilian casualties as well as members of the armed forces.

However, to bring this about, we need to raise around £3,500.

So, if you can support this very worthwhile cause which will help preserve the memory of all those who gave their lives in the war, please send your donation by cheque payable to Penge Forum (Memorial Fund) and post to:

Wendie Roche, 19 Burmarsh Court, Manston Close, Penge, London, SE20 7SQ.

Also, if you know the name of someone, who should be represented on the plaques please contact Chris Doran, c/o Penge Congregational Church, 172 High Street, Penge, London SE20 7QS.
