The First World War Centenary Exhibition – ‘End of World War One and Onwards’ has been arranged by a local resident and will be on display throughout the day at the Gill Nethercott Centre from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
The exhibition will reveal details of the men lost, where they lived and what we have now that they invested in.
At 3pm two homing carrier pigeons will be released. One will have message going to The Queen at Sandringham, written by Whitchurch’s most mature resident Eileen Knight (103 Dec) on special paper supplied by Portals. The other will carry a coded message to Bletchley Park. The pigeons will be launched from between two Birch Trees on the Silk Mill lawn and later those trees will be planted at a key point at the entry to Bere Mill, where the Queen and Duke visited several times as a celebration of their forthcoming wedding anniversary.
