The WW1 exhibition took place on Saturday 26th May in the village hall and saw 90 people come along to learn more about, and share memories of, those lost in WW1 from the local area. The village hall committee would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated cakes and raffle prizes, and their loyal band of supporters who as usual set it all up, sold raffle tickets, sold teas and cakes etc, and of course, packed up afterwards!
Cheshire Villages Great War Society, who also attended the day with some memorabilia, were very pleased with the number of visitors this attracted and the interesting questions that were raised. They were also pleased with the additional information local residents bought with them to share about other local residents living in the village during the great war.
We hope that everyone enjoyed the day.
Update – £136 was made on proceeds from the raffle, and £68 from refreshments. From the fundraising a donation was made to the Cheshire War Society as a thank you for all their hard work in helping to put on such a wonderful village event. The remaining money will go to the Village Hall Committee. Thank you again to everyone who attended and supported the event.
