The following article appeared in The Western Daily Press on 23rd July 1919:-

Peace Day was celebrated in Tytherington on Monday, and the inhabitants of this village were able to enter into all the jollifications in the fine weather.  Splendid arrangements were made and the day will be a red letter one in the history of the parish for all time.  First of all there was an assembly at the Council School when Mr C Fry, who was specially given the title of constable for the occasion read the Proclamation.  This was an impressive feature, Mr Fry doing full justice to the importance of the historic announcement.  A speech by Rev. A. W. Swayne followed, and then there was a procession, headed by the Tytherington Prize Band to the Hill.  Sports for children, a bountiful tea for the bairns and adults resident in the parish, including Baden Hill, with sports and dancing for the grown-up folk in the evening provided great pleasure for all.  It was indeed a great day for the parish, and those responsible for the arrangements are to be congratulted up the success schieved.
