YEARS of work culminated in a well received exhibition in Hebden marking the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Put together by village stalwart, Muriel Hargraves, with help from her son, Michael Hargraves, Chris Foster, Pat Hodgkin, and several knitters in the village, who made poppies, the exhibition was divided up into several themes, including the village before the outbreak of war in 1914, village men who lost their lives, women at war, and soldiers of The Empire.

In addition to copies of newspaper articles from the time, including the Craven Herald, there were also genuine First World War items, including shells and a bayonet.

A commemoration was held on the day before Remembrance Sunday with both Anglican and Methodists, the church bells were sounded, and Mrs Hargraves read out the names of all those who died and fought in both world wars. The event raised £312 for the Royal British Legion, and £204 for Hebden Village Institute.
