A VILLAGE has a packed weekend of Remembrance activities planned as the country prepares to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Middleton St George Community Centre and Parish Council are working together to organise a full weekend of activities for all the family on Saturday, November 10 and Sunday, November 11.

Organisers hope the packed schedule will bring people together from all corners of the village for what will be a special and emotional weekend for all.

Brownies and Guides will be visiting Middleton Hall to make poppies with the residents and to make a large cargo net that will be hung over the hedge at the community centre.

A craft session for village residents will also be held, where they will be invited to make their own poppy and attach it to the netting on Saturday between 1pm and 3pm.

Cake and coffee will be provided.

The history group in the village are putting together an exhibition of information with all the soldiers who died from the village in the WI hut for people to visit over the weekend, with cake and coffee also provided.

Many other groups in the village will also be involved in decorating the area.

A village church service will be held along with a walk down to the cenotaph on the Sunday morning and then coffee and cake will be provided back at the community centre to bring everyone together.
