Braintree and Witham Times: Parade planned to mark 100 years since outbreak of war Parade planned to mark 100 years since outbreak of war

A parade through the town centre is being planned to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Witham Town Council and the Royal British Legion (RBL) hope to hold a series of events this year to mark the war’s outbreak.

A commemorative service at St Nicolas Church, on Chipping Hill, on August 3, has already been booked.

It is hoped a parade, going from Collingwood Road to the Memorial Gardens in Newland Street, can take place the following evening.

See the current edition of the Witham and Braintree Times for full story.

I could get very bored and cross over the next four years.

No problem to mark the start of the war but can we have a clear statement of say no more than one a month event thereafter...

They won the war so it did not have to be shoved in our faces thereafter...
