WW1 Centenary

poppy

As many of you will know, the 4th August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history - the First World War - with fighting continuing until the 11th November 1918, Armistice Day. As a community we have come together in remembrance of events a century ago, remembering the fallen and the effect that the war had on Riccall, Britain and the world. 

The Council will provide a new inscription on the war memorial in St Mary's churchyard, which will say

TO MARK THE CENTENARY 

OF THE GREAT WAR

1914- 1918

NEVER FORGOTTEN

We hope to have this work completed before Remembrance Sunday and are currently waiting for permission to allow our monumental mason to go ahead. Secondly, we plan to create a small monumental garden on the Village Green.

There is currently a commemorative display in the rotunda area of Riccall Regen Centre, created by Riccall Archive Group.
