We have launched the official World War 1 website to remember the sacrifices made by men and women during WW1 across the District.
The special website developed by the Council in partnership with WLCT not only gives visitors information on local campaigns and events commemorating World War 1, but is also a way for family, friends and survivors to share their own memories.
This website has a wealth of local information about local men from the area who lost their lives during the First World War and also highlights our local wartime history.
Last year marked the centenary of the start of the First World War and there have been a number of events and commemorations in the District to remember those who fought. This year has seen two events: ‘Four Winters at War’ and ‘Stepping into Wartime’ which have formed part of the four year centenary programme. Both events were extremely successful and provided people with an experience of wartime within Cannock Chase District.
View photos from the latest event 'Stepping into Wartime' that took place on 11 August 2015. Thanks to all those that supported the event.
