Conservative Controlled Council to Investigate Holding Event to Mark the Centenary of the Start of WW1

At last week’s State of the Borough debate, Conservative Party controlled Tamworth Borough Council announced its intention to investigate holding a centenary event to mark the outbreak of WW1 in 2014.

The event will be planned to take place on August 4th 1914, the date Great Britain declared war on Germany and its allies, which lead to World War 1.

Cllr Robert Pritchard, Deputy Leader of the Council, said, “Many of Tamworth’s men signed up and marched off to fight for King and Country and the Borough Council want to remember all who fought in the Great War.

“4 August 2014 will no doubt see events across Britain and the world and Tamworth’s Conservative councillors want to see this town playing a part in the commemorations.”
