Malpas 75 Years On

Back home  /  Heritage  /  Malpas Remembers  /  Malpas 75 Years On


75 years ago the guns fell silent in Europe on the world's second global war. It is time to think about all of those who lived in that tragic and remarkable time – and who put Britain on the path to becoming what it is today.

Project Objectives

  • to remember and honour the soldiers who are listed on the Malpas War Memorial and gave their lives during World War 2
  • to recognise the hardship endured and sacrifices made by local residents during the 1939 – 1945 period.
  • to provide a comprehensive cross section of events that will be of interest to our current village residents, thus helping newcomers to the village, to get to know our history, thereby enhancing our overall community spirit.

Loan us your Artefacts
The search for Second World War artefacts to display in May 2020 has begun.

Local and former residents are being encouraged to share family photographs and memorabilia from the period for a exhibition.

It is hoped that the displays and exhibitions will appeal to all ages and the commemoration weekend will also include choral and drama productions.
