The Bonnybridge community will mark the 100th anniversary on August 4

 

A community gathering has been planned to mark the 100th anniversary of Britain’s entry to the First World War.

The free-to-attend event will take place at Duncan Stewart Memorial Park in Bonnybridge on Monday, August 4, at 7 p.m. and will be preceded by a parade which will leave from Bonnybridge Community Centre.

Church bells at Bonnybridge St Helen’s and St Joseph’s will be rung to commemorate the moment that Great Britain entered the first global conflict, which would claim a total of 10 million lives.

Provost Pat Reid will address the event.

Any community groups or organisations which would like to take part in the parade are asked to contact Baillie Billy Buchanan via Falkirk Council on (01324) 849504.

Meanwhile, a separate Great War memorial evening is being planned for Falkirk Town Hall on August 16 at 7.30 p.m. The event is free to attend, but tickets must be reserved in advance.

Tickets can be reserved from Bonnybridge Library, community centre or Baillie Buchanan.
