SERVICEMEN are being honoured by a pet cemetery who are supporting a national military animal charity.

The Pet Cemetery and Tea Rooms, in Brynford, near Holywell, are offering all food and drinks at half price to serving personnel and veterans from Monday, November 5 until Remembrance Sunday, November 11.

Emma Ward, one of the owners of the site, said: "On 11th November 2018 it will have been 100 years since the end of the First World War. To celebrate this, we at the Tea Rooms want to thank and remember all of our military personnel who have served or are currently serving.

"To do this, any current serving personnel or veterans of the military will be able to come to the Tea Rooms and eat with 50 per cent off all food and drink. To be able to take advantage of this offer, just bring along your Armed Forces ID and you are more than welcome to wear your uniforms and badges."

Emma added that the cemetery is working alongside North Clwyd Animal Rescue in a Purple Poppy Appeal, which is a campaign for people to knit as many purple poppies as possible to commemorate fallen service dogs. She said: "The appeal is all about animals at war - they serve too."

The NWMDM have also been donated a high-end painting which the Pet Cemetery will be hosting an auction for in 2019. Artist Jacqueline Hurley donated the work of art, named "Devotion to Duty," which is part of a series of paintings for the War Poppies Collection. Her Paintings reach anything between £4,000 and £10,000, and co-owner of the cemetery John Ward has first edition war books that he will be adding to the auction to help raise funds for the commemorative cause.

The Pet Cemetery and Tea Rooms has also campaigned alongside the National Military Working Dog Memorial (NWMDM) Trust, a charity has been established by members of the Armed Forces and relatives of those who have worked with military working dogs.

To stand alongside the buried pooches and other animals at the cemetery, Emma has worked alongside David Hanson and the Trust to install a stone dog statue commemorating the fallen dogs of all wars.

Construction is currently ongoing of the commemorative mausoleum, which includes four dogs facing north, south, east and west, and a date for completion will soon be announced.
