The centenary of the end of the First World War could be a huge event in one town.

Ideas on how Lyme Regis could mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War are coming in thick and fast.

Plans which went before last night's Lyme Regis Town Council’s tourism, community and publicity committee include building a 1.5m deep replica trench and decorating Broad Street with Union Jack flags during summer and in the week leading up to Armistice Day.

A First World War commemorations working group was set up by the council last month to come with ideas on how the town can mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War.

A replica trench intended to help children understand the conditions soldiers lived in has been proposed for the gardens.

The trench, which would be 15m in length and 1.5m wide, would be similar to that currently at Hooke Court and would allow children to climb over the top. If given the go-ahead, it will be dug in June and filled in again after Armistice Day.

The working group has proposed to fly flags from the businesses along Broad Street throughout summer and again during Armistice Week.

Other suggestions include the unveiling of the newly-refurbished war memorial. Lyme Regis war memorial has been enhanced in preparation for the centenary commemorations.

The town council and the local branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) have been working together to amend the memorial in Georges Square.

The project has seen the addition of five names to the memorial, as well as the rank and service or regiment of the fallen.

The project is the culmination of seven years of research by Lyme Regis RBL members Vernon Rattenbury and David Humphrey into the details of Lyme Regis servicemen who died during both world wars. The original format of first name and surname has been replaced with surname, initials, rank and regiment or service.
