World War I Commemoration

 

On 7th September 2014 we held a special service in the Park to commemorate the beginning of World War I.

As part of this commemoration, we asked to hear your personal memories and stories about members of your family or friends who lost their lives in the Great War.

Please continue to email details to www1@worthingtonpark.org.uk and we will still add your stories to this website.
