A number of individuals have shown great interest in marking the occasion together in the Village as part of our history. Suggestions have included a Community Tea Party; the showing of the seldom seen documentary made at the end of the War; to an enhanced Remembrance Day Service in the Church, all specifically remembering those from our community who never returned. There may be other ideas to be threaded into this sombre occasion - having said that we are all still thriving here 100 years later and that fact should be celebrated.
There is money available to support events but they will need organising. To that end there will be a meeting on Monday 30th April at 7pm in the Village Hall where village Organisations and individuals can meet up and get the ball rolling. The main tasks will be to sort out what sort of events should take place, where to have them and when, then form a working party to manage the process. Early discussions would indicate uncomplicated events with a manageable amount of arranging to be done. Assuming events will be focussed around the early part of November there is sufficient time get organised.
It is hoped all the events will have free entry.
Anybody interested or willing to help with the organisation will be most welcome to the meeting, you may be too busy to help but just want to add your thoughts - they will be most welcome.
