At Bellingham we presented scenes that led to the re-creation of three pictures photographed by W.P.Collier in 1914-1915. 
     The first was the requisitioning of horses.  Poignantly, these were led into Bellingham one by one from farms in different directions.                                                

Sunday 19th October

    At St Peter's Falstone we dedicated a new War Memorial plaque which was unveiled by two men of the parish whose brothers had died in the Second World War.  The dedication took place within a service to commemorate the outbreak of WW1 in the presence of the Duchess of Northumberland, County Patron of the Royal British Legion.
