A CALL has been made to unite remembrance efforts in Haverfordwest for the centenary of the end of the First World War in 2018.

Cllr Gillian Howell, the Sheriff of Haverfordwest is calling on community groups planning to commemorate the occasion to work together.

“Every November we pause to reflect, wear our poppies and attend services to remember all the service men and women who sacrificed, and continue to sacrifice, so much for us.

“But next year is even more important. 11.00am on November 11, 1918 marked the end of WW1, an event we have commemorated ever since on Remembrance Day. This makes 11.00am on November 11, 2018 its centenary,” said Cllr Howell.

The VG Gallery, The Royal British Legion, Haverfordwest Civic Society and Haverfordwest Town Council are already beginning to think about what they might do to mark this event.

The town council has agreed to help co-ordinate the events to avoid any possible clashes and publicise them as a whole programme.

To unify efforts they have come up with the idea of: 100 years of Remembrance, 11 organisations, 11 events over the 11 days leading up to November 11, 2018.

Anyone is welcome to get involved by putting on a play, an exhibition, a concert, a service or a special publication of local memories. Whether they are a school, a society or a business.
