Jacky Platteeuw Posted 31 October , 2002 Share Posted 31 October , 2002 At last some good news from Ieper. Next month the works will start to extend and embellish the John McRae site. The domain of 2 hectares will, once finished, become a 'environmental and pedagogical peaceparc'. The plans are looking great. The berm and meadow leading up to the 49th Divisional Memorial will be included in the site. Footpaths and an entrance for wheelchairs will be made. Notice-boards will indicate and emphasise the importance of the site. Will also be incorparated the recently found basements of a 1919 temporary house. THE eye-catcher however should be a gigantic poppy meadow. Works should be finished somewhere in may next year. Together with the new parc at Boezinge, were the Yorkshire trench is now being restored by the Diggers, I think Ieper will have two new major points of interest to offer next year.
