A bus shelter that housed a memorial to soldiers from Hargrave killed in World War II has been replaced after it was destroyed in a road collision in January.

The memorial plaque, listing the soldier’s names, was removed for safe keeping while the bus shelter was demolished and rebuilt.

It has now been put back in place in the new shelter.

Parish Councillor, Dave Taylor, said: “We do not have many structures in the village and that’s one of them it’s an important place so people do use it when they are waiting for the bus and for the war memorial.

“I think people are pleased they have done a good job and it is a good replacement for the old one.”
