To raise funds there was a History Weekend, including an exhibition at the local church and a talk by local historian James Holland. On Remembrance Sunday 2012 there was a lunch at the local pub where the pub donated £5 per meal purchased. In all, the villagers raised around £2,000.
The memorial has been restored with the help of a £1,262 grant from War Memorials Trust in the spring of 2013. In December 2013 The Wessex Branch of the Western Front Association donated a further £100 to the village war memorial fund to help to finish the project.
The village hopes to have the memorial project completed for November 2014.
