Local housebuilder Chestnut Homes has remembered local war heroes in the village of Dunholme by naming five new roads after them.

The new roads, as part of The Meadows development, situated between Honeyholes Lane and Lincoln Road, were named after parish members who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars and who are named on the memorial in the village.

The new road names will include Portus Lane, Creasy Drive, Andrew Court, Dixon Place and Braithwaite Mews, named after Fred and Harrold Portus, George Creasy, Jack Andrews, John Dixon and Dennis Braithwaite.

Anjum Sawhney, Chairman of the Parish Council, says: “We were very happy when Chestnut Homes suggested the selection of new road names and were more than happy to approve them. The names are a very fitting tribute to the courageous servicemen from our parish and therefore very poignant to the people that live here.”

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, says: “When we came to think of the new road names as part of this development, we really wanted them to have meaning to the local area. These roads will be part of the village for years to come now and it seems very fitting that they act as a reminder of the legacy of members of the parish who bravely served this country and sadly lost their lives.”
