The Peace Match

Submitted on 13 August 2014 by Town Council Administrator

A party of Civic dignitaries will be visiting Ypres over the weekend of 22 - 24 August 2014.

This trip is part of the commemorations of the start of World War 1; the main purpose of the weekend is a football match to take place between Newark and Emmendingen, replicating the Xmas match played between troops in 1914.

The delegation from Newark will include the High Sheriff and the Town Mayor.
