South Northamptonshire Council

The outline of two British Tommies now stand in the reception at South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) as the country prepares to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

SNC Chairman, Cllr Dallyn, said: “The 1914-18 war left deep scars on individuals, families, the nation and Europe as a whole. Even now, 100 years later, those scars have not completely healed.

“So it is incumbent on those of us living in relative peace to commemorate those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, to educate each generation so such tragedies do not happen again, and to heal those who still today put their bodies and minds in harm’s way so that we can sleep safely at night.

“The Poppies on The Tower of London commemorated the start of the First World War and captured the country’s imagination. I hope as many people as possible in South Northamptonshire take part and make ‘There But Not There’ an equally enduring memory.”
