Exhibition to Commemorate the Ending of the First World War

An exhibition is being mounted in Church, during Open Churches Week – Friday 27th July to Sunday, 12th August, during the Heritage Open weekends 6 – 9th and 13th – 16th September and in November, to commemorate those local people who fought and died during the First World War, and to mark the Armistice. A collage to be made by local children will also be on show.

If you have any memories or stories of family members involved in the war, either at the front or supporting the war effort at home – or have family memorabilia from the time, we should love to hear from you.

We are also planning a special event on Saturday afternoon, 15th September, where such stories could be retold over afternoon tea, perhaps with poems or readings if anyone would like to offer these. Please get in touch with Catherine (270 360) or Lynda (713 597) or Sue (715 804) if you would like to learn more about this.
