Leader of the council Cllr Neil Moore said: “The First World War saw an appalling loss of life, immeasurable suffering but also acts of great bravery. The legacy of the conflict lasts to this day and we want to ensure that we remember that time in our history and the fallen heroes who so gallantly gave their lives for us. The country as a whole will come together next year in tribute and remembrance with events taking place across the UK.”
