May 13th – Kings Road Memorial dedication

Kings Road St Albans held a cermony to mark the dedication of a new memorial to those former residents of the street who were killed in the First World War. The street memorial joins others in St Albans installed within the Abbey parish following the war. Kings Road, just outside the Abbey Parish boundary, had no memeorial to the 15 who lost their life. The current residents banded together to commission a contemporary installation mimicking the brick wall it is mounted on.

The dedication was followed by a street party, where despite unseasonably cool weather, food, drinks and entertainment by the residents was the order of the day. St Albans Morris joined in the entertainment with two spots, including the opportinity for the audience to join in, have fun, and warm up.
