How would you commemorate the WW1 centenary?
4:01pm Friday 4th October 2013 in News
PLANS are beginning to take shape on how to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War in Chalford next year.
Chalford Parish Council has already ordered 150 poppy seed packets which will be planted throughout the parish in April 2014.
During a works committee meeting in September it was agreed the council would give the three schools in the parish 20 packets of seeds, give away 60 packets to parishioners who would like them and retain 30 for parish council use.
Various other suggestions have been made by councillors and parishioners which include a memorial garden or orchard which would commemorate both the first and second world wars.
There are also plans in place to put together an exhibition about the war in the parish centre in Gerald’s Way – including information about Chalford residents who served in the war.
At a parish council meeting last night, Thursday, parish council chairman Chris Ellis put forward an idea by a parishioner to refurbish the war memorial currently in place in the Christ Church grounds in London Road.
If you have any suggestions on how to commemorate the First World War centenary please email the parish clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org.
