£9,000 handed to Wiltshire for First World War plansPosted on 28th May 2014
Grants that add up to around £9,000 have been given to a range of projects across Wiltshire that will be honouring the First World War.
Grants went towards projects such as a remembrance orchard in Collingbourne Ducis and the makeover of the war memorial in Enford.
Just under £2,000 went towards a four-week project for young people to participate in summer activities from 4th-29th August too.
There are a huge number of events planned in Wiltshire for remembering the First World War and one such special service is set to take place at the end of July in Tidworth. This service is set to attract a large number of visitors, so if you are staying in nearby quality holiday cottages in Wiltshire and want to attend the service you should get there well in advance.
The Wiltshire council chairman, Chris Williams, says, “These commemorations are really bringing all our communities together and it’s good to see how the grants from the area board will help create special moments for each area to remember their own soldiers who went to war.”
