Lymm At War
Happily that’s not a news headline; it’s the title of a new book. But of course at Christmas one hundred years ago Lymm, like every other town and village in the country, was facing the grim reality of the Great War. Hundreds of young men had already signed up and departed to serve their country - many were never to return.
“Lymm at War”, compiled by local history enthusiasts Madge Bennion and Lynn Smith, tells the compelling story of some of those brave and women in both World Wars and also describes the impact of war on the home front, especially the families of those left behind. Make sure you get your copy (just £7) while stocks last from: Lymm Electric, The Coffee House, Cost Cutter, High Legh Garden Centre or Lymm Library. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01925 756776. A percentage of the sale of the book will be donated to The Royal British Legion.

Lymm and District Round Table are holding a Charter Night to mark their 50thyear on Friday 20th February, 7:30pm, at the Spread Eagle Hotel, Lymm.
The fundraising group, which organises popular community events throughout the year including the Easter Monday Duck Race, Big Lymm Bonfire and Lymm Beer Fest, is inviting all former Table members to a night of hot food, a private bar and entertainment.
Current chairman Chris Gorman said: “This will be an informal evening where Table members past and present can share stories about the good old days and hopefully catch up with some forgotten faces.
“It would be good to see as many former Tablers there as possible – either from Lymm and District or further afield – plus if anyone has any memorabilia or old photos to add to the occasion that would be great too.”
Tickets are priced at £10 and to book your spot or find out more call Chris Stephens on 01925 759699 (evenings) or email email@example.com
