SWINDON POP-IN CENTRE to commemorate the Centenary of the Armistice with a special display.

Centenary Armistice display opening to be held on Friday 12th October from 10.30 am to midday.

The Royal British Legion’s Swindon Pop In is hosting a special exhibition this Autumn to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War Armistice.

The new exhibition will be opened during a special coffee morning in the Pop In, on Friday 12th October 2018 from 10.30 am to midday.

The exhibition will remain open throughout Remembrance and until the end of 2018.

Working closely with Local historian Mark Sutton, the display will focus on the people and town of Swindon, their service and dedication during the War, and on how this town was affected by the tragedy of the First World War.

Children from Ferndale Primary and Nursery School have worked hard to create their very own First World War Tommy, filled with their own thoughts and reflections about Remembrance.

100 years ago the guns fell silent on the world’s first truly global war. At the Royal British Legion we believe that it is time to think about all of those who lived through this tragic and remarkable time, and who put Britain on the path to what it is today. It is time to say thank you for all that they did for us.

The Legion supports the whole Armed Forces community, past and present.

The charity has been supporting members of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, Royal Air Force, reservists, veterans and their families since 1921 – and that support will continue long into the future.

The Swindon Pop-in Centre is open Monday to Friday, from 10am to 4pm, and will open for the Poppy Appeal on Saturday 27th October, Saturday 3rd November, Saturday 10th November and on Remembrance Sunday morning 11th November.
