First World War Centenary

From 7.30pm on Monday 4th August, the First World War Centenary will be commemorated with a vigil of  music, reading and prayers at the Church of St Simon and St Jude.

The vigil is part of the nationwide memorial to mark, commemorate and remember the lives of those who lived, fought and died in the First World War,  and will tie in with the nationwide LIGHTS OUT initiative to mark the hour that Britain entered the First World War, one hundred years ago.

Everyone is very welcome as an opportunity for the whole village to remember what happened one hundred years ago and how we are all connected  to the First World War, either through our own family history, the heritage of our local community or because of its long-term impact on society and the world we live in today.
