Weedon Garrison to stage open day

There will be a rare opportunity for the public to visit Weedon Depot on Sunday when the site holds an open day to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War.

The event starts at 10am and attractions include displays by military re-enactment groups, Edwardian stalls and games, and a collection of classic fire engines.

Admission is £5 per adult and children under 16 go free. The money raised will be donated to the roof repair fund of the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Weedon, the Royal British Legion and Weedon 1914-1919.

A free park and ride service using vintage buses will be running between the former military depot and Weedon village hall. For further details, visit www.facebook.com/Weedonatwar.
