West Watford History Group will be commemorating the final Armistice Day of the four-year 1914-1918 World War One centenary at their POEMS, POPPIES & PEACE event at the West Watford Community Centre, 15 Harwoods Road, Watford
This will take place at the Community Centre on Sunday, 11th November 2018 between 2.30 pm and 5.30 pm.
All our members and friends in West Watford will be welcome to join us in remembering families across the world who suffered as a consequence of what was called The Great War. Many young men died from almost every nation and continent on earth and the consequences of their loss impacted on their families and local communities, such as ours in West Watford.
Our displays will include facts and figures about how the war affected our community and others; there will be artwork and readings of famous poems and some not so famous.
Refreshments - hot drinks and squash, biscuits and snacks - will be available throughout this twilight event and there will be 100 lights to represent each year of the 100 that have passed since the end of the conflict was announced on 11th November 1918.
