Located in the heart of the country within the National Forest near Lichfield, the National Memorial Arboretum comprises 150 acres of over 50,000 trees and over 150 memorials devoted to the concept of Remembrance and acknowledging the enduring sacrifice of those who mourn their loss.
Well known as being the home of the Armed Forces Memorial, the arboretum also hosts a wide range of memorials which fall into several categories including: Military, Civil Services, Police, Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service, Local Organisations, Overseas Organisations and Charities.
The Arboretum is supported by the Royal British Legion, is free to enter and welcomed over 300,000 through its gates in 2008.
Thanks to the support of Lions Clubs all over the country, our new shelter was opened on the 14th of September 2011.
These are the Clubs in our District who have given financial support:
