I was raised in Exmouth until the age of 10. I now live in the US, but return often to your beautiful town to visit my family and enjoy your pubs, beaches and scenery. However, I have always thought the war memorial in the Strand Gardens has been the heart of your town. It is a beautiful reminder of local citizens who chose to risk themselves to protect others. When I return to the States and show my holiday pictures to my friends, they always comment on how beautiful your town garden is and ask about the cross. What better way to continue to honour those who died than to continue to explain why the memorial is in the centre of your town? Times change, but honouring the past is what I respect most about my English heritage. The cross was chosen then as a symbol of respect, honour and memory. A place to rest the names of those lost. Let it continue to be the heart of your townKim Gardner,4947 E Mining Camp St, Superstition, Az
