Commemorating 100 Years since the End of The Great War 1914 –
Claverley have been commemorating all those who died from
the village in the Great War (WWI). We have displayed the details of every member
of the community killed in action on the date of their anniversary. Between
2014 and 2018 we have displayed the details on a board at the back of church
and have built up a large display finishing with the death of Private Dennis Bull.
These local heroes will be remembered at our
annual Remembrance Service and their details will remain in church until
Over the weekend of the Armistice 2018 we have several events taking place:
Our monthly Coffee Morning will take place between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 10th November - All proceeds this month will go to the Poppy Appeal.
church choir will be singing songs and hymns at a local Public House (The Gate
at Heathton) on Saturday at 7pm and we will relight the church tower on the Saturday evening.
community will finish thecommemorations with our Remembrance Service, which is usually
attended by around 200 people, on Sunday 11th November from 10.30am.
