This year marks the 100th anniversary since the end of World War I – along with many other places across the country – Guiseley has a programme of events to commemorate the signing of the armistice on 11 November 1918, when Germany surrendered unconditionally. The events are a chance to reflect, to fulfil the military covenant, and to quietly say thank you to the First WW generation.
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
This has been primarily championed by St Oswald’s Church and community arts company Codswallop. Other organizations, including, of course, the Royal British Legion are also playing their part. Most of the events and installations have been paid for by donations from private individuals or our local Councillors plus lots of work and effort by countless people from across the area. Further information on events can be found on the Guiseley Remembers Facebook page here.
Friends of Parkinson’s Park will have a Home for Heroes Exhibition and Coffee Morning on 17th November, 10am – 12 noon, at Whittaker Firth’s Offices, Springfield Court, Guiseley (behind St Gemma’s shop).
