To mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, members of the Dunmow U3A signed a book of condolence, remembering family and friends who had died in active service, before laying a wreath at the town’s war memorial.

After signing the book, acoustic duo Fool’s Gold performed.

Jenny Versey, from Dunmow U3A, said: “Fool’s Gold gave a touching tribute and history of the First World War through the eyes of one soldier, using their own particular brand of songs and music. At times, they had us all singing and waving our flags, and at other times we were moved to tears.”

The group’s membership is now more than 500 and general meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month in Foakes Hall at 2pm.

The next meeting will be on November 28, with Keith Lovall talking about the history of food in Essex.
