Plans for a memorial to Clipstone Camp - where soldiers trained for the Great War trenches - are set to go ahead thanks to vital help from a nearby resident.

Landowner Guy Shaw-Browne has offered the donation and transport of architectural materials still in existence from the footings of the original camp billet huts.

The concrete memorial will be built at the front of Samuel Barlow School and will include a six ft upright piece and memorial garden, organisers hope.
