On Saturday 18th September 2010 at 2pm a service was held at Christ Church New Malden, to remember our civilians killed and injured in WW2 and celebrate the community that we have become. We had a fantastic turn out and the organising committee would like to thank everyone who played their part in making this such a wonderful community event.
Saturday 15th October 2011 A short dedication will be held at New Malden War Memorial (High Street) as a plaque is unveiled in memory of the civilians who perished. The money that paid for this was raised from donations given at last year's service and we invite the community to attend.
