Eastry World War One Commemorative Event

Today, I joined the World War One commemorative event held at Eastry Primary School. The event featured re-enactments, a vintage dress award ceremony and had the Landmark Show Choir singing wartime tunes for the community.

The centenary of the First World War is a sobering moment which affects all of us - young and old. We will remember all those who paid the ultimate price for freedom and democracy. I am incredibly proud of Cllr Wickham and her team for putting on this wonderful event to commemorate the legacy of those who gave their lives for our nation.

It was great to see the local community out in force, not just to enjoy the displays and stalls, but also to learn about the history behind the war. I particularly enjoyed listening to the Landmark Show Choir performing some wartime tunes for the crowd.
