Volunteers wanted to help mark Armistice centenary in Gedling Village

Remembrance Day, Stock, Poppies

People in Gedling Village are being invited to a meeting later this month to help plan how the community will commemorate the centenary of the Armistice.

Gedling Borough Council has announced plans to help back communities planning events to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War – and now people in the village have begun putting ideas together to mark the occasion.

Organisers are now hoping to put together a display in the village memorial hall to celebrate the lives of those who lost their lives in the conflict.

HELP: Can you provide any information about these people from Gedling killed during World War I?

The names of those lost are listed on a plaque in the hall and those putting together the display are appealing to those with any information on the people mentioned to get in touch with pictures or further information so they can be added to the display.

People who wish to contribute to plans for the centenary are now being invited to attend a meeting to discuss the plans.

The meeting will take place on Monday, January 29 at All Hallows’ Church from 7.30pm.


Events marking the centenary of the Armistice will take place on November 11.
