Many returned from WW1 not only with physical and psychological scars, but also to no job, and no home, and that’s why it’s important to recognise their contribution as well.
A list of those who survived WW1 is currently being compiled by Estelle and Winterton Town Council have agreed to pursue this idea. Copies of the reports submitted to Winterton Town Council and the WW1 survivors list have already been on display at Winterton Show and viewed by many visitors at various other public events in the town. If you've not seen them yet, why not come down and have a look at them at the following events and discover how you can get involved to commemorate those from the town who returned from World War One and later conflicts:
- Saturday 20th December - Christmas Craft Fair. Winterton Community Pavilion, Newport Drive - 12 noon - 4pm
Estelle has stressed to the Town Council that it is vital that all Winterton residents, young and old, have their say on how the town should commemorate the survivors' contribution, so come and share your ideas.
Winterton Town Council supports Estelle’s vision of ‘something’ in whatever form it takes, being unveiled at the centenary of the Peace Celebrations in 2019.
So come on people of Winterton, get your thinking caps on! It’s your golden opportunity to create a lasting legacy and honour those from the town who came back from war.
