Visit to the graves of the young men from the village who died in WW1

Villagers are organising a 3 day trip to visit the graves of the young men who are named on our war memorial, and who died in France. We have room for more people, and would be delighted to hear from anyone else who might join us.

It will be from Sunday 17th May until Tuesday 19th May. We have obtained the services of a War Graves Commission Guide who will take us to the individual graves and other places of interest, and tell us about the action there during WW1. We shall take some mementos to leave on the graves to link them to our village, and to commemorate the great sacrifice of these men who left Sibford (one of them straight from his honeymoon) for a war which was so far away in those days and from which they did not return.

Each piece of equipment has its own instructions for use. These explain how to use the equipment and the benefits to be gained. They are used entirely at your own risk.

The five pieces are: Read more »
