Setfords sponsors event in aid of The Soldiers’ Charity & Maperton Church

Setfords is delighted to be sponsoring an illustrated talk by Dr. Patrick Mileham on “The Spirit of 1914 – The Regiments that won the War” in aid of Maperton Church and ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity. The event will take place on Saturday 2nd August and Sunday 3rd August, on each day at 6pm at Maperton Church, near Wincanton, Somerset. Dr. Mileham, a former regular soldier, during his talk will outline with graphic images the mood and activities in the crucial days leading up to and at the start of hostilities in the first weeks of August 100 years ago: he will dwell on the various types of armies which were raised in Britain, the numbers involved and the ordeal that they faced thereafter over the first grim few months and the four years fighting until final victory. Tickets are £15.00 per head and can be purchased from James Scott or via the website, www.maperton.com. For more details of the event please click here.
