Unveiling of Memorial Plaques

Over a 5-year period, a dedicated local group of individuals, ranging from 14 to 70 years of age, performed West Lothian Far From Ypres / There Was A Soldier to packed venues - including 3 years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  These performances helped raise much-needed funds for the names of the Fallen to be installed at the Broxburn and Uphall War Memorial.

The plaques were unveiled, on Sunday 23 June, by Deputy Lord Lieutenant John Povey, Mrs Kathleen Dalyell (widow of the late Sir Tam Dalyell), local historian Jonathan Moore and 96 year old WW2 Veteran Michael Boylan.  As a young man, Michael served at El Alamein, Tripoli and Monte Cassino.  He was one of Field Marshal Montgomery’s Desert Rats.


Mrs Meg Stenhouse has prepared books with details of those who Fell, which will be available in Broxburn Library and Uphall Community Centre.

Local Defibrillator Fundraising

The 1756 (Broxburn) Sqn Air Cadets are fundraising for an accessible Defibrillator.

30,000 people die each year, outwith hospital, from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).  620 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of these deaths happen to children within schools.

If defibrillation takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 80%. Having the defibrillator installed means that it can be deployed by the local ambulance trust in a bid to give the patient the all-important shock to the heart prior to the ambulance arrival.

The defibrillator is by no means a replacement to the ambulance service, it just allows patient treatment to commence immediately.

If you can help Sqn 1756 by donating, supporting with a fundraising event, or taking on a sponsored challenge then please contact them direct or via https://www.aeddonate.org.uk/projects/aed-for-1756broxburn-sqn-air-cadets/.

The event will let them find out how the community currently uses the Park, what they do and don’t like about it and what improvements or changes could be made to improve the space.

You can drop in anytime between 4pm and 7pm to give them your comments and suggestions.  Following the consultation event they will consider all comments and use them to develop proposals for creating an enhanced park.
