The Cheshire Villages Great War Society is supporting Macclesfield Council’s commemorations of the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (V.E.) Day with an exhibition on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th May 2020, paying tribute to the ladies and men of Macclesfield and the surrounding district who lost their lives in World War Two, 1939 – 1945.

Coverage will be given to those named on the Park Green War Memorial, and also those who are not named but are known to have connections with the area.

Efforts have also been made to include the names of those who served and returned home to their families. With this in mind, if you know of anyone from the local area who served in World War Two and you would like their name to be recorded, please get in touch with Harry Carlisle via the website’s contact form. The Society is keen to acknowledge their contribution and include any photos and memorabilia in the display.

Family and Military History Research helpdesks will be provided by the Macclesfield Group of the Family History Society of Cheshire, and by the Cheshire County Memorial Project.

The exhibition will be held in the Salvation Army Hall, Roe Street, Macclesfield (entrance on Wellington Street, opposite the Churchill Way car park). For a location map, please click here. The hall will open at 10am and close at 5pm. Admission is free and refreshments will be available.

An invitation is extended to any surviving veterans who served in World War Two to be the guests of the Cheshire Villages Great War Society. Come along and enjoy our hospitality, tea and cakes, and share your experiences with us.
