North Wheatley commemorates WWI

by | 8 November 2018 | Community Event, Retford

Villagers and friends from North and South Wheatley have been busy knitting poppies to form a weeping display outside the church to commemorate the end of WW1 100 years ago. Inside the church there will be displays remembering the fallen from the village and residents are invited to display any memorabilia of their own ancestors they may have, should they so wish.

The church will be open on 10th and 11th November, from 10.00am to 4.00pm, for visitors to come along, enjoy tea and cake and view the displays. The Remembrance service will be held at 10.45am on Sunday 11th and a warm welcome awaits those who wish to attend. There will be related activities for children, throughout the weekend.
