New branch of the Western Front Association

The Western Front Association is a national charity dedicated to remembrance and education for all aspects of the First World War.  There are branches in Durham and Cleveland but Chris Robinson is hoping to establish a new branch in Richmond.

The inaugural meeting of this new branch will take place on Wednesday 11th April 7.30-9.30 at Richmondshire Cricket Club, Hurgill Road, Richmond.  It will include an inaugural lecture by Sean Godfrey, Chairman of the Cleveland Branch of WFA, on “1949 – Illusions Shattered: How the war began, British actions until Christmas 1914 and the destruction of so many hopes and dreams”.

The meeting is open to all and is free although a donation on the door would be appreciated.  The Club bar will be open and there is plentiful car parking opposite in the Nun’s Close car park. 

For further information, or to express an interest but cannot attend the meeting, please contact Chris Robinson (tel: 07814 855858 or email:
