Villagers delved deep into the history books at the weekend to learn more about how North Somerset was affected by World War One.
Cleeve’s Holy Trinity Church hosted a history afternoon on Sunday, with guests examining a wide range of pieces from the past with the centenary of the end of the war approaching.
Armistice Day on November 11 will mark 100 years since the conclusion of World War One, and Cleeve’s history buffs gathered to learn more about how the war effort was felt in their village.
A display remembering all the heroes of Cleeve who served during the war proved a popular attraction, and this will also be used as part of the church’s remembrance service.
The event was organised by Rachel Kew, Catherine Hunt and Sarah Cush, who paid tribute to the efforts of local historian Dave Ridley, whose wisdom proved invaluable in creating the showcase.
