Ever thought about volunteering in your local community? Middlewich Town Council is on the look- out for enthusiastic people who could help us with the Middlewich and the Great War Weekend on the 4th and 5th October.
This is an exciting community event that not only commemorates and remembers the Great War but also the radical changes that affected our home lives. We have created a balance between the history of the Great War from a Cheshire point of view and the fundraising events that various committees put on in the Town.
We have put together an exhibition, which is the starting point of our aim: to learn as much as we can about Middlewich people during the Great War but also of the families of todays’ Middlewich residents.
The fundraising events were fun and morale boosting, so we have a programme of entertainment over the weekend which reflects that with bands, theatre, drama, sports day races, high tea and the fairground.
We also have a boat rally and entertainment right on the Trent and Mersey, all together a brilliant free weekend out and we need volunteers to help run everything smoothly and join in the fun!
This event is run by Middlewich Town Council with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund and we are also part of Cheshire Reflects which has a new website letting everyone know what Great War projects are going on in Cheshire East. www.cheshireeastreflects.com
