Villagers in Whalley are being invited to attend a public meeting to discuss plans to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Members of Whalley Local History Group are encouraging local residents to attend the meeting next month and air their views on how the anniversary can be celebrated.

A spokesman said: “This year Armistice falls on Remembrance Sunday and it would be fitting that the whole community of Whalley and surrounding villages celebrate the armistice and remember the 65 boys and young men who gave their lives for their country in the Great War.

“The purpose of this meeting is to discuss how Whalley might mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, form an action group and generate a plan for events.”

The meeting will be held at Whalley Primary School on Tuesday, February 6th, at 7pm.
