A family day is planned in Bluff this Sunday (11 November) to mark 100 years since the signing by Germany and the Allies of the armistice that ended the First World War.
The main Armistice Day activity will be at the Oyster Festival site from 11.30am to 3pm. Entry will be via the Barrow Street gate to the site and admission is free.
A special feature of the day will be a flyover by a Tiger Moth aircraft at 11.45am, weather permitting, courtesy of the Croydon Aircraft Company. The Tiger Moth is a piece of aviation history and was developed from the early planes of the First World War.
On a poignant note, there will be a display of photos and some stories of our fallen soldiers from Bluff.
Inside the venue, there will be activities and entertainment for all ages – including an area for toddlers. A photo booth will feature a dress-up box of fashion from the early 1900s and there is also the option of using one of the vintage cars on display as a backdrop. On a more poignant note, there will be a display of photos and some stories of our fallen soldiers from Bluff.
