On November 11 2018, it will be the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, which signalled the end of the First World War conflict.
Ashford Borough Council has been staging many events throughout this final year of commemorations, focusing on the theme of peace and reconciliation and the sacrifice made by those overseas and on the home front, both nationally and locally. Join us for the culmination of these events.
