A beech tree will be planted in Walsoken to mark 100 years since peace was called for the end of World War One.
A remembrance service is being held on Sunday November 11 at the War Memorial in the grounds of All Saints Church, Walsoken.
Annette Williams, clerk to Walsoken Parish Council, said: “As this date commemorates the centenary of the end of WW1, the War Memorial has been recently restored plus there will be a ceremonial planting of a beech tree to remember this historic occasion.
“The ceremony will start at 10.45am at the Memorial, and will be conducted by Rev Allan Landall.”
The Walsoken war memorial is the figure of a rifleman holding his gun.
