We Will Remember Them
On 11 November 2018, the nation will mark the day 100 years ago when the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War. Communities across Dover District are getting involved and preparing remembrance commemorations.
Cllr Sue Chandler, Chairman of Dover District Council, said: “Communities across Dover District are uniting to remember the centenary of the end of World War One, and say thank you to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world. Dover District Council is proud to be involved in supporting our communities as we join together to say ‘we will remember them’.”
There are a range of Remembrance Parades across the district. For more details, please see the White Cliffs Country website.
Battle’s Over is a unique series of events involving organisations and communities nationwide to remember the sacrifice of millions of men and women during WW1. DDC is asking people to register their Battle's Over events to help us to pull events together and promote them across the district.
There But Not There
As part of commemorations, DDC has been posting a series of iconic photos of 'Tommy' silhouettes across the district in the run up to Remembrance Sunday. For more details on silhouettes nationally, please see the There But Not There website.
