Centenary of the Armistice Exhibitions
In order to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice at 11am on the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month in 1918 which ended the fighting in the First World War, two exhibitions are to be mounted in Foxton this coming November.
The Foxton Fallen and the Foxton Heroes displays tell the stories of Foxton Men who gave their lives and those who served in the Armed Forces during the Great War. These were produced in 2014 to commemorate the Centenary of the Start of the Great War, and will be re-mounted in St. Andrew’s Church and on show from Saturday 3 November until after the Armistice Day Services on Sunday 11 November.
A further exhibition of Foxton History and Wartime Souvenirs will be put on in the Robert Monk Hall over the Armistice Day Weekend of Friday 9 to Sunday 11 November. This Exhibition will provide information and pictures describing Life in Foxton in Former Times and also display various Wartime Souvenirs and Memorabilia.
Both Exhibitions will be Free Admission and it is hoped that suitable refreshments will be provided to visitors in the hall on the Saturday and Sunday afternoons. St. Andrew's Church is normally open every day and the times the Hall will be open will be published in due course.
Do you remember the FOXTON AT WAR video shown at the 1986 Foxton Festival?
Anyone who knows who made this video and what happened to it afterwards please contact Carl Bedford (01858) 545667 so that it might be re-shown at the planned Armistice Centenary Exhibition.
Anyone with material suitable for display in the hall and happy to make this available, or have it copied as appropriate, please contact Carl by email at . Offers of help with the exhibitions, particularly for supervision at the hall which is needed at all times, would also be very welcome.
