The first in a series of Sefton Council funded events has been announced to help commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One.
The Royal British Legion’s Netherton and Sefton Branch will be holding a special Armed Forces night featuring live music and food on Friday October 26 from 7pm to mark one hundred years since the end of the Great War.
The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Dave Robinson, will be present to officially open the evening.
Other events throughout the coming months will include poetry readings, themed lunches and quiz nights.
Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “This year marks the centenary of the end of World War One and we are proud to be able to support the various local legions in supporting our communities.
“These events go hand in hand with our Beyond The War Memorials campaign as we look to honour our WW1 heroes and heroines from across the geographical area which now makes up Sefton.
“We’re also looking for budding poets and writers to get their thinking caps on and compile emotive, thought provoking and fitting poetry for our BTWM project.”
The Armed Forces night takes place at the Netherton and Sefton Royal British Legion Club, Fleetwoods Lane, Netherton from 7pm on Friday October 26.
