Art work recalls war-time in Lower Withington

A FRAMED piece of art has been donated to a community to mark 100 years since the outbreak of The First World War.

The art work, which will hang in St Peter’s Church, commemorates the young men of Lower Withington and neighbouring parishes who gave their lives in the conflict.

Bernard Tuck initially originated the art work for an exhibition organised by the Cheshire Villages Great War Society.

Marjorie Clarke, whose son David is a founding member of the society, paid to have the picture framed and donated to St Peter’s Church in memory of her late husband Arthur.

Cheshire Villages Great War Society will hold its next exhibition at Goostrey Village Hall on Saturday, May 10.

The exhibition is due to run from 10am to 4pm, and it will feature the parishes of Goostrey, Eaton and Lower Withington.
