Residents to be taken back in time

First published in

RESIDENTS and visitors to St Mary’s Church in Fordingbridge will be taken back in time when the fictional village of Fordwick is unveiled on July 5-8.

Armed with hammers, nails and pots of paint, volunteers are transforming the church hall into a village scene from 1914 to mark the centenary of the First World War.

The village is to feature cottages and tea rooms, a sweet shop and railway station, plus a village church and pub.

The opening will take place at the church hall, with a display of vintage vehicles and stalls, country dancing and the Bridges Brass Training Band performing. A preview evening is on Friday, July 4, from 7.30pm-9.30pm.

Tickets cost £10 from Jane Calver on 01425 656189.
