1918-2018 Pewsey Remembers

To commemorate the 100th Anniversary since the end of the First World War, the Parish Council will be unveiling a new memorial seat in the Market Place on Armistice Day.

On 9th November at 1.30pm, young people from Pewsey Primary School and Pewsey Vale School have been invited to plant 33 trees in the form of a cross on Pewsey Common (the top of Pewsey Hill).  This area will then be formally known as Century Cross.

Each tree represents a man who left Pewsey to fight and never returned.

Students from Pewsey Vale School have designed and produced name plates for each tree and Pewsey Primary School will be placing a time capsule under a centre piece Sarsen Stone.

Everyone is welcome to attend, in particular, any descendants of the 33 men.

This act of Remembrance will become a long lasting, meaningful, commemorative area looking down onto Pewsey and across the Vale and will benefit the environment for years to come.
