                                                                FOOTBALL REMEMBERING

Notts County Council are publicising a Games of Remembrance Day planned on November 8 involving football matches at Notts County and Nottm Forest grounds and played between  Men and Women of the British Army and similarly teams from German Armed Forces.

 

The two games   --Ladies at Notts ground at 12 noon and men Forest at 7pm—are meant to replicate similar games that took place on Christmas Day 1917 when a WW1 24 hour truce was agreed between England and Germany and which resulted in football being played between the Army personnel of the two countries.

 

The two games on November 8 will be attended by VIPs and sporting legends from both countries and there will be fan zones, music and exhibiti9on areas at both grounds.

 

A family ticket for the women’s game will cost £5 (1 adult and 2 children) and for the evening game two adults and two children will be admitted for £10.  There will be a concession price of £2 50 to either game for any uniformed services, under 16’s, students and senior citizens.

 

Tickets are on sale on-line and from the box office of the host clubs.

 

Contact gamesofremembrance@gmail.com for further information.

 

The Games of Remembrance through the power of football, aims to bring WW1 stories of courage and sacrifice alive, 100 years after the guns fell silent.

About Shelford

 

 

Shelford is a typical rural community village with a church, pub and village hall which are all well used. It is situated beside the River Trent.

 

Shelford means ‘place of the shallow ford’ and there has been settlement here since the Bronze Age. The village is in the Trent Valley, about 8 miles from Nottingham. Shelford is still very much a farming community with arable and mixed farming and a livery stable. There is plenty of wildlife, particularly migrating birds down near the River Trent. There is a toll ride for horses and the Trent Valley Way runs through the village.

 

The village has a community-owned pub, the Earl of Chesterfield Arms (for news of what's happening here please click on "Pub News" under the News and Events tab) and a Village Hall, previously the Church of England School, built in 1873 by the Earl of Carnarvon and later taken over by the Notts Education Committee, the school closed in 1964.  The building belongs to the Crown Estate and was leased first to the Church and then to the Parish Council to be used as a Village Hall.
