More details have been released about a commemorative event in a Sleaford village that will see a message of peace being shared globally.

The Harmston Ring of Peace has attracted the interest of Prime Minister David Cameron, Prince Harry, and most recently, The White House.

It will see a message of peace being relayed, via telephone, between every country which fought in the First World War on Saturday, October 4 to commemorate 100 years since the conflict’s start.

To coincide with the project, a special event is being held at Harmston Memorial Village Hall, in School Lane (where the message will start and finish) at 6pm for a 6.30pm prompt start.

It will include a meal (guests are asked to bring their own cutlery), period entertainment and bar, with period costume being optional.

Tickets are priced at £10 and are available from 01522 722919, 01522 723261 and The Thorold Arms - proceeds to the hall.

Robin Dunseath, who has helped organise the initiative, said it would be a ‘unique’ and ‘exciting’ evening.
