WW1 Centenary

Moreton-in-marsh Town Council thanks everyone who made the WW1 Centenary such a memorable event for the town. Many people volunteered their time and effort to mark this poignant moment in our history. Thanks go to those contributed to the flags in the High Street, the displays around the War Memorial and to the coffee and cake morning held in St David’s Church on 27th October.

Special thanks go to the Heroes of Moreton group, who researched the fallen of Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford Parishes, producing images of the fallen for a slideshow, banner and booklets.

On the days leading up to the Centenary, many people came to hear the Roll of Honour read each evening by volunteers and councillors. Thank you to Town Council staff and others for organising and helping. The huge attendance at the parade marked this significant day.

Thank you to Friends of the Redesdale Hall for providing refreshments in the hall after the parade.

The Town Council was delighted to host 25 retired residents for afternoon tea in the WI Hall. This was prepared by enthusiastic volunteers working with town councillors, and greatly appreciated. Overall, Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford parishes can feel justly proud of how the centenary of the end of the First World War was remembered.
