Remembrance Ride, 9th June 2018

On the morning of 9th June a small party of villagers will set off from the WW1 memorial and, over the following five days, will visit the graves of all of the villagers killed in action in the years 1914 – 1918. The party will travel on this memorial tour on motor scooters, arriving in Dunkirk in the evening of the 9th June, Ypres on the 10th and the Somme on the 11th June. The tour will be recorded and a few moments of silent remembrance held at each grave. The tour of these graves aims to remember these men, commemorate their sacrifice and raise money for the British Legion.
