Langtoft display celebrates the life of fundraiser Sir Captain Tom Moore




A memorial to Sir Captain Tom Moore is brightening up a village street.

Langtoft residents have decorated a series of rocks to create a caterpillar in the village.

The display also includes a rose bush named after the 100-year-old fundraiser, who captured the hearts of the nation during the first coronavirus lockdown by walking laps of his garden.

The rose bush was donated by Waterside Garden Centre.

Project organiser Jack Barton said: "We have made a permanent stone caterpillar, with each stone painted by villagers to show their support for Captain Tom’s amazing fundraising efforts.

"It’s been lovely to see people stop and nosey at all the creations."

There is also a commemorative plaque on a bench next to the display.

The caterpillar is located alongside the fence of Langtoft Pre School. Anyone who would like to add a stone to it is welcome to do so.
