   Date for the diary - Tuesday 8th October - Centenary Meeting to mark WW1    September 13, 2013

Marking the start of the Great War in August 1914

 

Next year will see one hundred years since the start of the Great War, as it was called at the time, on August 4th 1914. West Meon Parish Council is keen to work with parishioners to consider how this occasion should be marked.  We have already started to have some ideas about this but would welcome additional thoughts. The Parish Council has responsibility for the war memorial in the churchyard and is seeking grants to help restore the lettering detailing the names of the fallen, but we feel that there may be other activities we could develop to mark this historic event that left such a mark on our community.

West Meon Parish Council will hold an open meeting to discuss ideas at the Sports Pavilion on the evening of Tuesday October 8th at 7.30pm. We do hope that you can attend to find out more about our ideas and contribute your own.
