Chelford Chums Remember
Chelford Chums met this week to remember the centenary of the First World War and to recall how the world's great economic powers were plunged into one of the deadliest conflicts in history. Members brought along war memorabilia, documents and books to provide stimulus for discussion and reflection. The Chums were joined by some of the children of Chelford Primary School who are currently engaged in a history project. The children, acting as reporters, sought to question the Chums on life in Chelford way back in the twentieth century and how the village had changed over the years. Needless to say, memories came flooding back and the children enthusiastically gathered information for their project. The afternoon was punctuated with cakes and ingredients used in the early twentieth century suitably decorated and eagerly consumed. Kath Gildon, Chair of Chelford PC, updated the Chums on proposals for a World War 1 art exhibition and the planting of poppies in the village, as part of the Chelford contribution to the 100th anniversary of the War.
