Home » News » 100 years on - The Dale Brothers

2017 marks the centenary of the deaths of three Dale brothers, who gave their lives for their country in the Great war.

Living at Frith farm, Wrenbury, all four brothers attended Wrenbury School, sadly only one would return. The three Dale brothers are remembered on our WW1 plaque in the school hall.

Using the recently found, unseen, family archive including many photos a local book is to be published in early September, which tells the story of the Dale family and the military careers of the sons.

Orders for the book(price £7) are being taken by Peter Bebbington tel: 780890

All proceeds go to the British Legion.

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
