Ground broken for new Remembrance Centre at the NMA

Dame Penelope Keith, assisted by Sea Cadet Beth Molyneux (10), recently broke the ground for the construction of an inspiring new Remembrance Centre at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Julia Holberry Associates wrote the Activity Plan in support of the Arboretum’s NLHF application, and the project was awarded £2.85 million in October 2012.

Julia and the team wish the NMA all the best and will look forward to seeing the build progress.
