    The Beer 2014 Group was formed to commemorate the residents of the village of Beer, Devon, who served in the First World War. We hope to plant an avenue of trees in a clifftop car park overlooking Lyme Bay as a lasting memorial to all those from the village who served in WW1, both those who died and the survivors.

    We have been awarded a National Lottery grant to cover part of the cost of the scheme, but we have unexpectedly been required to pay for archaeological work on the site before we can be granted planning permission.

    We need to pay for an archaeological survey before we can start, and then for an archaeologist to supervise the groundworks and produce a report on any finds. This will cost around £4,000, and we need help to raise this amount, so that we can create an attractive, lasting memorial to everyone from the village who served in the armed forces, on merchant ships, or as nurses or Red Cross volunteers in the First World War.

        A very worthwhile project, and, who knows, maybe the archaeological survey will turn up something interesting!
