First World War Commemorations 04

Next year the country will be commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War. Britain declared war on Germany on 4th August 1914 and fighting on the Western Front ceased on 11th November 1918.

Throughout the country there will undoubtedly be many commemorative activities and events. We are now considering what would be appropriate for Haddenham.

There will no doubt be activities associated with the schools, and during November 2014 there will be an exhibition in the Village library, in the museum, in St Mary's Church and possibly in the Village Hall. There will also be church services and prayers for peace.

We would like to relate the content of the exhibition as much as possible to families in Haddenham. At the moment we cannot assess the scope of what we need to put together, so we need your help.

If you have any family memorabilia or stories concerning the First World War that you would like to share, please make contact with Alan Rose (291004), Nick Burch (291885) or Graham Tyack (291629) and we will arrange to meet you.
