Forget Me Not

26 October 2018

Heritage Lottery Fund has generously supported a project for Cheriton to commemorate the towns role in the First World War. We will be running a free family workshop over half term at Strange Cargo and a talk by local historian Vince Williams on 10th November. Please come along and join in, there will be lots to do and lots to hear about. Strange Cargo is also posting out a special invitation to a number of Cheriton homes. If you receive the postcard shown below, please contact us as we are inviting these houses to hang a commemorative wreath on their front door over the Armistice weekend in November as they are one of around 100 known homes once lived in by one of Cheriton's fallen servicemen. If you do not receive a postcard and you know that your home was also one of these please get in touch. Thanks also to Vince Williams, Peter and Annie Bamford, Amanda Plankenhorn and Cllrs. Peter Gane, John Collier, Patricia West and Roger West for their support.
