A VILLAGE will celebrate 100 years of its history on Saturday, after snow hampered an earlier event.

Enham Alamein was first created as a village centre to support injured service personnel returning from the First World War, and on February 16 residents will celebrate its history at Landale Wilson Hall.

At the event from 11.30am to 4pm, villagers are invited to view decades of history held on display, as well as a chance to share stories of times over tea, coffee and cake.

The date has been rearranged from February 2 when heavy snowfall caused a cancellation.

Parish council chairman Leslie Francis said: “It’s a great opportunity to be reflecting on our past as the village has such a rich history. I hope that you can join us and learn more about what is just a stone’s throw away.”

A memorial bench will also be unveiled on the village green at 11.30am to mark the occasion.

Charity Enham Trust will play its part in the day.

Hannah Leicester, head of income generation at the trust, said: “The charity was set up a few years after the establishment of the village in 1921, and will therefore commemorate our centenary during 2021.

“This village event will bring local people together, and hopefully reveal more untold stories!”

The event is open to all.
