TOWNSPEOPLE are being invited to have their say on a new tribute to Littlehampton men who died in the First World War.

Developers Barratt Homes have produced three designs for a commemorative feature on the Kingley Gate estate being built at Courtwick.

Town and Arun councillors for the area Mike Northeast and Tony Squires approached Barratt Homes with their idea for a stone which will explain why some of the roads on the estate are named after servicemen from Littlehampton and Wick who died in the conflict.

“This is not intended to take anything away from the existing war memorial, it is to commemorate the centenary of the start of the war, as work also began on the estate 100 years after the war broke out,” said Mike.

People can email their choice to centenarystone@icloud.com or fill in a form at Littlehampton Museum, in Church Street. Barratt will pay for the stone.
