THE Highworth Historical Society will host an open day next week.

Two main displays of photos and archive material will be exhibited at the town's community centre in the Dormers on Saturday October 20 from 10am to 4pm.

One display will explore the history of leisure activities in Highworth from 1800 to 2018.

The second display will commemorate the centenary of the First World War Armistice by looking into the lives of the men from the town who died in the conflict, as well as the family who had eight sons fight in the war and all returned safely.

Entry is free.
