News and Events Upcoming Events End of WW1 Fireworks Celebration On 19th June 1914 the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, was assassinated. This triggered a series of events that led to the outbreak of the First World War. Within weeks the major powers of Europe were at war and it wasn't until 11th November 1918 when an armistice was signed. To celebrate this, starting at 2:30pm William Lench Court will have entertainment and will be letting off fireworks for the residents at the scheme. Some of the older residents would have been directly affected by this event and for most, their parents would likely have been. Booking for this event has now closed.
