Business Support

Local businesses are getting behind our Ribbon of Remembrance as the centenary anniversary of the end of The First World War approaches.

Over the past few months, local people have been encouraged to submit images and information about those affected by the events of 1914 to 1918.  Hundreds have responded to the call, and our online Ribbon of Remembrance continues to grow as we head towards this historic date.

Now, the Ribbon has become reality – with profiles being made into display boards and lining the route between Catterick Garrison and Richmond.

And the town’s businesses with links to The First World War are joining in too, by displaying boards which link them to people affected by events 100 years ago.  They are displaying their Ribbon boards, from Saturday 27 October.
