Time really does fly and it’s difficult to imagine that we are nearly at the end of our two-year Heritage Lottery funded Farnhill World War 1 Volunteers Project. In that time, with help and support from a large number of people, we have successfully researched the lives of the 68 men of Farnhill who volunteered to serve in WW1, and have also looked into what life in the village was like during the war.

We plan to share the results of our efforts in an exhibition, called “From Farnhill to the Front”, which will take place in the Institute, Main Street, Farnhill, on Saturday 10th November, between 10am and 4pm.

The exhibition will include:

  • Commemorative displays for each of the 68 Volunteers
  • A village WW1 timeline
  • Slideshows
  • A replica of the Farnhill Methodist Roll of Honour
  • Displays of WW1 artefacts
  • Some samples of family trees
  • Children’s artwork from Kildwick School
  • Poetry and music of the period
  • Poppy Waterfall created by the Knitwick and Yarnhill craft group
  • Admission is free. Tea/coffee will be available.

Note: The main exhibition will be in the main hall on the ground floor. However the Poppy Waterfall and some exhibits will be on the first floor – only accessible by stairs.

We hope you’ll be able to come along.
