Church Square in St Helens

Have your say

Residents can take a trip back in time and find out what life was like in St Helens during the difficult years of World War One at a special event.

St Helens Council is staging a full day of activities and workshops bringing history to life in Church Square as part of the commemorations for the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the conflict.

Children will be able to take part in school lessons from a century ago and play games from the wartime years, while pewter toy soldiers will be cast on a brazier.
