Slough Remembers

2 August, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

| Free

The Slough Remembers event which will run from 10am to 2pm in Slough town centre will give residents the opportunity to step back in time, taking part in activities and games of the time, hearing stories from the Edwardian era, finding out Slough’s role in the war and seeing images of Slough from 100 years ago.

The mayor will unveil the new memorial at 11am as part of the key event in which Slough Museum is playing a major role.

Almost life-size photos of Slough 100 years ago will decorate walls and hoardings along the High Street.Mayor of Slough, Councillor Shafiq Chaudhry, has issued an invite to residents to join him for the event:

“Nearly one hundred years ago, Britain declared war and men from across Slough and across the country took up arms and gave their lives.  One hundred years later we are commemorating their sacrifice, their courage and the lives they and those left behind had in our town so long ago.

“I would like to invite residents to join me … to learn more about the sacrifice people made and commemorate their actions.”

And all visitors will be encouraged to plant free bags of poppy seeds given out on the day.
