Memorial Lych Gates in Honour of Our War Hero's Have Been Stolen!

Police incident number 17000516613

Please, please contact Revd Gill

Or the police on 101, quoting incident number 17 000 5166 13 if you have any information. Please share.


TelegraphRevd Gill told the Derby Telegraph: “When we opened for morning prayers this morning the gates were missing. "They are the gates which lead to the churchyard and form part of the war memorial for all those who died in the Great Wars. “I don’t understand why someone would take them as I can’t imagine they are particularly valuable as they are made from oak. “They are large gates, probably around 4ft, and it would take two large men to lift them. Unfortunately, they could just be lifted off the hinges.” She added: “It’s incredibly sad to think someone would do this. But it’s Christmas so the Christian part of me thinks I hope it helps them. But the non-Christian side of me is very upset and mad. “Hopefully we can find whoever is responsible for this.” A post on the West Hallam with Mapperley, Stanley and Stanley Common Churches Facebook page said: “Holy Trinity Mapperley's gates have been stolen. "This is a despicable act, given that they were given in memory of those who served in the Great War.”

Derbyshire police said it is investigating an alleged theft from the Mapperley Lane church.
