The Memorial Centre
This spacious modern building, situated on the Memorial Fields on Thrapston Road, has two large reception rooms and is an ideal venue for all sorts of events.
It has a large car park and a well appointed kitchen.
The Memorial Centre also has suite of changing rooms, paid for by a grant from the Football Foundation.
If you follow the Memorial Walk from the NE corner of the Memorial Playing Fields (wooden kissing gate) on Thrapston Road you will find behind the football pitches a small oasis of attractive ornamental trees and a paved garden with benches and tables.
This is our Memorial Garden which was laid out in 2008 using monies allocated to Brampton from the development of the garage on Thrapston Road into what is now The Hurdles
It was laid out and planted by volunteers and some members of the Parish Council. Frosts Garden Centre supported this project giving financial help and advice on choice of perennial flowers and shrubs. These have been maintained by members of the Parish Council and gradually added to. Additional planting of daffodils and snowdrops has been carried out by village residents and children. The garden is now well established and provides a scented, shady and attractive seating area.
The decision to plant memorial trees in the area surrounding the garden was welcomed by those who wished to sponsor a tree in memory of a loved one who had lived in Brampton. The trees were chosen from a list of those suitable for the area and are now flourishing, producing varied foliage and blossom throughout the year. A further nine trees were planted in memory of those who lost their lives in the Second World War.
We are grateful to our groundsmen for their valuable contribution in keeping the grassed area of the Memorial Garden trimmed and cut.
