Ruscombe Parish Council is involved in a project initiated by Wokingham Town Council to commemorate the first world war centenary.  The project is being funded by the National Lottery and involves a borough wide heritage trail of local war memorials.  The Memorial Trail launches on the 14th September 2014, which coincides with Wokingham town's heritage day. The exhibitions banners will be available to view after that date.  More details of events and the heritage trail can be found on Wokingham Town Council's website: http://www.wokingham-tc.gov.uk/heritage

A brochure with information about each war memorial has been produced and is available to view online at http://issuu.com/wokingham_tc/docs/heritage_memorial_trail_brochure_is/1.   Hardcopies will be available to collect from St James Church.

Below is a map showing the locations of all of the war memorials in the heritage trail.
