National Memorial to the evacuation by Maurice Blik

This memorial is not simply a memorial for the evacuated children but all those involved in the evacuation process i.e. the train drivers, teachers, nurses, billeting offices, and of course, the foster parents. It is intended to portray the greatest family and social upheaval ever experienced in the long history of our country, a unique, never to be repeated, part of British history.

Thank you to all our members, family and friends, and our supporters who have made this possible. It has been a long time in the making and your support and patience has been appreciated. Without you all, this would not have happened.
