Royal British Legion “Thank You” Day

2 September 2018

The Knotty Heritage Train running day at Foxfield will be very special as we will have the support of the Royal British Legion to run the event as part of their "Thank You" campaign which they're organising this year to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice.   Please see their link: https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/remembrance/ww1-centenary/thank-you/

The plan is to hold the event as a "thank you" to various groups.   We have various themed stalls and presentations plus some animals to amuse the kids - shire horse, ponies, owls and hawks. We hope to recreate the atmosphere of a North Staffordshire village market square with railway station when the troops came home from the front in 1918.   Various local groups will be running stalls.  The Borderlines Theatre Group (New Vic Theatre) will be performing as will the Peace Through Folk Choir.

An event for all the family - not to be missed!

Most important duty of the day - the Knotty Heritage Train will be helping bring back our brave “Tommies” from the front as you can see from these photos!
