100 Years on from WW1 – PVHG Open Meeting Tuesday 27th March 2018

An early WW1 Recruiting Poster – later, conscription was introduced and people had to join anyway.

The Packington Village History Group’s next meeting will take place on Tuesday 27th March at 7.30 pm in Venue 35, the Memorial Hall meeting room.

Sunday 11th November 2018 will mark exactly a century since the end of the First World War.   We will discuss how we might take part in our village’s November events celebrating this pivotal juncture, perhaps alongside major national and worldwide commemorations.
