There are thirty names on the Great and Little Chesterford war memorials of men who died in World War One answering their Country’s call. We should also remember those men and women of other counties who fought for what they thought was right.
There But Not There is a national project at the Centenary of the end of The Great War to Commemorate, Educate and Heal and ensure their sacrifice is not forgotten.
You may have seen some of our commemorative Tommies around the village telling their individual stories. These have been purchased through charitable grants and donations from individuals, but we are still fund-raising to achieve our £3000 target to support our village’s programme of commemoration, culminating on November 10/11 with a range of fun, cultural and religious events.
At today’s pub-quiz at the Crown and Thistle, Tommy will be there to remind you. Please buy a beer for Tommy to help us commemorate their sacrifice.
