CHESHIRE VILLAGES GREAT WAR SOCIETY

EXHIBITION

The Cheshire Villages Great War Society will be holding its next Exhibition on Saturday 13th May, 2017, to remember and commemorate those who lost their lives fighting in WW1 from the villages situated in North East Cheshire.

The venue for this event will be at the Poynton Civic Hall, off Park Lane, Poynton, SK10 1RB.

First-hand information will be on display and available for those whose names are remembered on the Poynton, Woodford, Disley, Adlington and Hazel Grove War Memorials. There will also be a representation of other villages from this area of Cheshire.

Why not pay a visit and discover the story behind the soldiers from the local area who went to war to fight for King and Country and never returned.

Also on display will be paintings, poetry and embroidery, done by the local school children, depicting their interpretation of the Great War.

There will be the opportunity to find out further information on your relatives who went at the bidding of that poster by Lord Kitchener, “BRITONS WANTS YOU”

Whilst the researchers are very willing to help with any enquiries, they are also eager to obtain further personal information from relatives of those who died, information, artefacts  and photographs which will help to give a complete picture of those ‘heroes’.

The Hall will open at 10.00 a.m. and the event closes at 5.00 p.m.

Admission is Free and there will be refreshments available.
