Commemorating Peace Day – Friday 19 July 7pm

On the 19 July 1919 this nation formally celebrated the end of the Great War and the signing of the Peace Treaty of Versailles. The villagers in Fairwarp planted a tree to commemorate the day but unfortunately there are no records to tell us where they planted it. One hundred years on and we are planning to plant a tree in the little green triangle on the right as you enter the village. We cannot plant it until the autumn but we will be gathering at the spot this Friday at 7pm to mark the occasion. It will be an informal event, with no specifically religious element, but we shall read the names of the 26 men from the village who gave their lives – the Fairwarp Fallen – and shall also read two or three short poems.
Please come along to be part of this commemoration.

Fairwarp Fete 2019

The village fete was a great success last Saturday and Andrew Telford, Chair of the Village Hall Committee, has written a thank you note to all those who helped to make it such a brilliant event. The money raised will help support, improve and maintain the village hall, children’s play area and village green.
