50 Trees for 50 Soldiers
The planting of 50 trees to remember the first 50 volunteers who marched from this village to go and fight in WW1 took place on 1st November 2014.
This is the first time the names of the 50 have been put together in one place. Over 500 people attended the ceremony with many going on to the reception after.

HUGGLESCOTE’S WORLD WAR ONE COMMEMORATIVE WEEKEND
Friday 29th - Sunday 31st AUGUST 2014
What an amazing weekend this was. We had visitors from Birmingham, London and other places far and wide. In all, we estimate that 1200 people visited our Commemorative Weekend.
Thank you so very much for all of those who came and especially to those who helped to make it happen by making poppies, delivering poppies, manning stalls, making cakes and all of the other things that made it possible.
We surely did those lads proud.
