4th Warrington Cubs WWI Community Project

7 November 2018

Stockton Heath WWI Community Project.

The Cubs from 4th Warrington (1st Stockton Heath) have led a project with their leader Milton Wimpenny to research all the names they could find connected to their village, 136 as it turns out.

The cubs with help from parents, grandparents and others connected with the community have now created a display which includes separate posters for each soldier and for some family members information on the women who worked for the Red Cross during WWI.

This amazing display, as featured recently on North West Tonight with David Guest, is now on show at St Thomas’s until 11th November and includes poems and other work by the local Brownies.

The 4th Warrington Scout Group (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) along with the local Guide Sections will be joining together on 11th November, the 100-year anniversary of the end of WWI, to make the Remembrance Service a very special occasion.

A second brief service and beacon lighting at the top of St Thomas’s tower will take place at 18:30 on 11th November. The grave yard will be illuminated by electronic tea-lights placed on the graves and memorials of the soldiers.

Well done to everyone involved including those who tidied and cleaned the graves and all of the WWI and WWII graves and memorials at St Thomas’s on Saturday 3rd November.
