Taverham to mark Armistice centenary

Taverham is planning a major event to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, on November 11.

Taverham Parish Council, in conjunction with Wensum Valley Golf Club, is holding a Battle’s Over celebration at the golf club from 3.30pm to the lighting of the Taverham beacon at 7pm and beyond.

Tickets are limited and people are advised to book early to avoid disappointment. The £10 per head charge includes a sit-down, two-course, authentic wartime meal that could well have been on the menu 100 years ago.

Tickets are available from Taverham Parish Council office, Wensum Valley Golf Club, Abbotts at Victoria Road, Pyms and Co at Acres Way,  and at William’s Way in Drayton.

Taverham Band will provide entertainment and there will also be a slideshow.

Organisers are looking for First World War memorabilia to display and any photos etc of street parties. Contact parish council chairman John Pennells on 01603 261681 if you have any items
