WWI, The Great War 100 years on

WILBERFOSS remembers

As part of the Centenary commemoration of this momentous event an exhibition is planned to take place at Pocklington Arts Centre from 31st October. Wilberfoss has been given the opportunity to make a small contribution to the Pocklington event.

From the 9th November this contribution will form part a display at St. John’s Church, Wilberfoss. Efforts to gather any information on the men who served, fought and lost their lives is on-going. If you have any information…letters…pictures…enlistment documents…relating to men who were born or lived in Wilberfoss and took part in this dreadful conflict this could enhance the exhibition and make more real, their memory. If you feel able to help in this way please contact: Sue Skelton, 380322, susanjane.skelton@btinternet.com. Any items could be scanned and copied to minimise the risk of damage or loss of precious originals.
