Town pays its repects

A special exhibition has taken place to remember those from Cramlington who sacrificed their lives in the First World War.

Residents in the town came together for a special tribute to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War.

Local resident Doreen Morton and town councillor Trevor Ambrose organised the exhibition of war memorabilia, highlighting how the war affected the lives of ordinary people in Cramlington and the surrounding areas.

The exhibit was open for one day to mark the anniversary of the outbreak with photos, information, books and posters on display of Cramlington during the war period.

An interdenominational memorial service given by Susan Younger of the Salvation Army was held at St Nicholas Church, which was followed by a procession lead by the British Legion to the war memorial lit by a solitary lantern.
