7th April 2014
You may be aware that various groups and individuals in the village have been meeting to discuss how we might commemorate this centenary. Many suggestions have been put forward for events to mark this very special anniversary. Battlefield tours are being considered along with displays and exhibitions. Research is also underway into the many village residents who not only made the ultimate sacrifice but also those who played a part in the war over its 4 year span. We have a WW1 leaflet with more information, which will be distributed around the village with the Addingham Churches Together (ACT) Easter ‘Sign Post’ booklet. A big thank-you to ACT. We are working ‘hand-in-hand’ with the Parish Council on this project. If you want to learn more about what is planned or would like to help, then once again speak to a member of the committee or send us an email.
