War display for key year

MOVES are underway to organise a special event in Ponteland next year.

In November 2014, the town council is planning to hold an exhibition of memorabilia from all conflicts since 1914 at the Memorial Hall to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

Those who would like to express an interest in displaying items such as photos, hats, badges, uniforms and medals can email the Mayor – peter.cowey@pontelandtowncouncil.co.uk – or call the authority on 01661 825092.
