Cash boost to help create memorial to WW2 airmen

Barnsley’s Pogmoor Area Residents Association has received a £500 cash donation from developer Taylor Wimpey to help fund a brand-new sensory garden in the area.

The garden in Pogmoor Park is located on the site where a Whitley bomber aircraft crashed in 1942 and will be a memorial for pilot, Sgt Hollingworth and navigator, Sgt Buchanan.

Marlene Crossland of PARA said: “We are extremely grateful for the kind donation which will help us to put our plans for the park into action.”
