Please support organising village memorial Events
Coxhoe Village Hall was opened in 1932 with the large hall added in 1938. It was built by public subscription and inspired by a community desire to have a permanent war memorial to the heroes who lost their lives in the great war of 1914-18. Since then an annual remembrance event has been held in the war memorial garden. Interest waned for a while but was revived about 20 years ago by Mary Egglestone with the support of the Village Hall Committee.
It now attracts a large gathering and there is a new enthusiasm with more village groups and individuals involved and offering ideas. Indeed the Parish Council has already secured the erection of a Village flagpole. The Parish Council have been approached with the idea of setting up an informal group to plan and organise the event so that all in the community have an opportunity to be involved.
John Hepplewhite have already agreed to help out, but if you’d also like to get involved please contact the Parish Clerk and we’ll set up an initial meeting.
Please volunteer to keep this important community event going
