In the summer of 2019, Honley Civic Society will be participating in the village celebrations of Peace Day 1919, when the nation rejoiced at the end of the Great War, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.
Plans are at an early stage but your help is sought in remembering how the villagers spent the war years, in mills, in munitions factories or raising funds for the comfort of the troops and the Belgian refugees, who lived here.
Can you HELP us to create a picture of life in Honley during WW1?
Please contact us through our email address:- email@example.com
Join us for a weekend of celebration including an Exhibition revealing the lives of Honley’s villagers in The Great War. Parish Rooms, Church Street Saturday 20th July, 2019 between 10.00am and 3.00pm.
