Over the last four years, the Council and Inspiring healthy lifestyles have been committed to delivering a four year commemorative programme to remember those that fought and lost their lives across Cannock Chase District.


In 2018, the Council secured funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund to help fund the final commemorations. Inspiring healthy lifestyles submitted the application on behalf of the District’s World War 1 Working Group, a collaboration of local Armed Forces’ organisations and branches, local arts group members of Cannock Chase Arts Council and Cannock Chase Council.


The group has worked hard over the last four years to engage with local businesses, creative individuals and groups to provide events and activities for local communities to support and participate in.


The Council and Inspiring healthy lifestyles would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has supported the commemorative programme - in particular,
