A DAY of commemoration and celebration is planned in Wadebridge this summer to mark two significant wartime events.
The local branch of the Royal British Legion has joined forces with the town council to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy in 1944.
A joint event will be held on July 5 at Egloshayle Playing Fields, from noon.
The Royal British Legion will begin proceedings with a march, salute and wreath-laying at the Memorial Stones, and a number of military vehicles will form a display.
Organisers are also hoping to bring a full-size Spitfire to the town.
Later on, 30 members of the Riders' branch of the RBL will ride in on their impressive motorcycles, including Harley Davidson models.
There will be re-enactment events, and everyone is encouraged to come in wartime dress, with prizes awarded for the Best Adult and Best Child.
Music will be provided all afternoon by Wadebridge Town Band, the RAF Air Cadets Band, bongo drums and songs from the Shipwrecks group, with more to be announced.
Town councillor Carole Buchanan, who is helping to organise the day, said:"Alongside all the wartime events, the town council is organising a traditional town fête, with the popular family dog show, children's entertainment and lots of stalls.
"Local charities are very welcome to come along, but should phone the town hall to book a place. The ladies of the Christian Centre and Wadebridge Foodbank will be providing their usual super light lunches and snacks in the Pavilion, and we are hoping the beer tent will be provided by the rugby club.''
