Colyton's WarI hope to be at the opening ceremony for this important event commemorating the end of the First World War 100 years ago and the lives of local people during that conflict.

As an unpredictable nationalist occupies the White House and cynical authoritarians rule in Russia and China, this is a good moment to remind ourselves that peace is fragile and that in the 21st century we still need the institutions which Europe and the world created to maintain it after the Second World War – which had claimed even more lives than the first.
