First World War

Do you want to share a memory?

People may remember an exhibition in the church in 2014 to commemorate the start of the First World War. Details were given of the men from the villages who lost their lives in this terrible conflict. This year is,of course,the centenary of the end of the War. We now know quite a lot about the men who went,but there is not so much known about the men who came back. Often they returned mentally and physically damaged for life. Often they returned to find that there were no jobs for them and after all they had suffered for their country,they were reduced to begging on the streets or selling matches.

We would like to mount another exhibition to mark the end of this terrible War and tell people about some of the men who came back. If you have any knowledge of anybody from Gnosall and the other villages in the Benefice who returned,what happened to them after the War and what they came back to,we would be delighted to hear about it.

Every little Helps

Each year Gnosall Parish News makes donations on behalf of our readers to help out one or several organisations in the village,or perhaps charities with strong local connections.

We are now inviting submissions for 2018. So if your organisation or charity is in need of a little financial help,please let us know. Or perhaps you know of young people in the village who are raising funds for a special project.

Decisions on donations will be taken at our Annual General Meeting on Thursday May 17th at Gnosall Fire Station.

So please get your application letter in as soon as possible! Write to our editor Joyce Rowe at 8 The Seesall,Gnosall,or email us at and explain how a donation would help.

Dog mess left on towpath cleared by Best Kept Village volunteers

Why do people think that it is acceptable to bag dog mess and then drop it on the towpath? Especially when there is a bin nearby on Plardiwick Road? 

Best Kept Village volunteers have been clearing the mess from the towpath,where it meets the other popular dog-walking routes,the Millenium Way,at Plardiwick Bridge.

If you have any information please let the Parish Council know,and please encourage all dog owners to carry bags – and dispose of them appropriately
