© 96th Entry

You may already be aware of the Halton Apprentices Memorial Garden in the shape of the brass wheel at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas.

Use this link to see their web-site.

There is also a link from the Old Haltonians site and the 223rd Entry has a good write up on it as well - see the External Links page.

The Halton Apprentice site can be found at Map location 215 in the Orange Zone.

Pavers have been laid around the perimeter of the site to commemorate Entries and certain of those apprentices who have a claim to fame or in their memoriam.

The Halton Apprentice Memorial Garden has recently been refurbished and was the subject of the 90th Anniversary of the Apprentice Scheme celebrations.

Following is a brief report and pictures from Merv Kelly part of the 96th detachment attending the event:

"Five of us, plus partners, attended the 90th Anniversary of the Apprentice Scheme at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas on 12th May 2012. It was a very good day and well worth attending. As you may know, the original beech hedges in the form of The Wheel were replaced last year with a decorative hard surface, surrounded by individual pavers to commemorate Entries. We paid our £50 at the last Triennial to have ours in place."
