The Town Council is set to organise a ceremony at 11am on the 4th August on the Municipal Square to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War.
The ceremony will take the form of a Remembrance Day parade and is expected to last up to 30 minutes.
The purpose is to mark the anniversary with all due reverence.
Cllr Joy Bratherton who leads for the Town Council on the World War 1 programme of events said:
‘it is important that we mark this event in the proper way. The Town Council is proud to be making this happen.
We ask that anyone wishing to participate and to lay a wreath in particular contact the Town Council in order that they can be assured of the opportunity to pay their respects’
The new Mayor of Crewe, Cllr Pam Minshall said:
‘I’m proud of my involvement in this important year.
To formally commence the start of the Council’s programme of events I laid a floral display at the Cenotaph on the 22nd May.
This is my tribute to those who sacrificed their lives’
