Farnhill World War 1 Volunteers Project – 10 Nov 2018

We are nearly at the end of our two-year Heritage Lottery funded Farnhill World War 1 Volunteers Project. In that time, with help and support from people such as yourself, we have successfully researched the lives of the 68 men of Farnhill who volunteered to serve in WW1, and have also looked into what life in the village was like during the war.

We plan to share the results of our efforts in an exhibition, called “From Farnhill to the Front”, to which you are warmly invited. The exhibition will take place in the Institute, Main Street, Farnhill, on Saturday 10th November, between 10 am and 4 pm, and will include:

• Commemorative displays for each of the 68 Volunteers
• A village WW1 timeline
• Slideshows
• A replica of the Farnhill Methodist Roll of Honour
• Displays of WW1 artifacts
• Some samples of family trees
• Children’s artwork from Kildwick School
• Poetry and music of the period
• Poppy Waterfall created by the Knitwick and Yarnhill craft group

Admission is free. Tea/coffee will be available. Note: The main exhibition will be in the main hall on the ground floor. However, the Poppy Waterfall and some exhibits will be on the first floor – only accessible by stairs.

I do hope that you will be able to come along, and I look forward to seeing you there.
