Road deaths remembered; KIDDERMINSTER.

A MEMORIAL dedicated to victims killed on the roads of Kidderminster has been unveiled at a moving service.

The stone monument was unveiled by Road Peace - the national charity which helps and supports families who have lost a loved one due to a road crash.

The monument, which now stands in front of St Mary's Church, was officially opened during a service of dedication on Sunday morning. (OCT1)

Members of the local branch of Road Peace were able to provide the memorial thanks to generous donations from local organisations including the Lions Club and local Rotary Club.

The specially commissioned monument is made from granite stone recovered from the Grimley Sand Quarry in Worcester and is of the same type as that which would have been brought down the River Severn many thousands of years ago.

Canon Paul Brothwell, chairman of the group, said Road Peace felt it was very important to have a memorial for the local community.
