Children from seven Wiltshire Primary Schools will be putting the clock back 100 years at the Chippenham Olympiad on Thursday May 21st.
Together with older people from across the area they will take part in a day-long World War One celebration organised by the Goldies Sing and Smile Charity.
Rob Parsons is headteacher at Colerne Primary School and a Trustee of the Goldies Charity which now reaches out to hundreds of isolated older people across Southern England and Wales.
“It is a joy to see young people interact with those who are young at heart.
“Everyone is welcome to our free admission World War One day which runs from 11.00am until 3.00pm. We are delighted that the Mayor of Chippenham, Cllr David Powell, will attend. I understand that this will be Cllr Powell’s first official engagement as the new Mayor of the town.”
Schools taking part are; Colerne Cof E Primary School, Charter Primary School, The Mead Community Primary School/The Mead Teaching School, River Mead School, Forest and Sandridge CE Primary, St Patrick’s RC Primary and Bishops Cannings CE Primary.
