75th Anniversary of V2 Rocket Landing in Hextable
On 14th March 1945, a V2 rocket launched from France, landed on buildings in Hextable, killing 10 civilians. The rocket landed on the site that is now occupied by the parade of shops in Main Road Hextable that were built in the 50’s.
Hextable Parish Council, in partnership with Hextable Heritage Society and St Paul’s Church, are holding an event 75 years to the day that this attack took place to mark the V2 attack. We will be unveiling the first Blue Plaque in Hextable at the site where the V2 landed and also dedicating a new area of open space In the village as ‘Hextable Memorial Garden’ in remembrance.
We will be marking this with a short but significant joint ceremony on Saturday 14th March to be held in the village. I am pleased to be welcoming civic guests as well as members of the family who remember the event, and would like to extend the welcome to residents to join in this event.
We will be unveiling Hextable’s first blue plaque on the parade of shops at 11:00, followed by a short dedication ceremony at the site of a new open space at the bottom of the Broomhill Bank school field.
If you would like to be part of this event, the party will be assembling at St Peters church from 10:00am for tea and coffee.
