Remembering Together

3rd Oct 2014

We are pleased to announce that we have received a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to commemorate World War 1 through workshops in primary schools in the counties of Berkshire and Wiltshire.  Our aim, in partnership with CREW (www.crew.uk.net ),is to provide opportunities for school children to gain a broad understanding of some of the ways the War affected people in these counties.   We are offering interactive, engaging workshops with props and costumes to bring this dramatic and significant period of British history to life.

 

This is a commemoration of the contributions made by the men and women of the counties of Berkshire and Wiltshire during the war years, and will maintain local memories for local communities for years to come.

 

The workshops will run in Berkshire 3rd – 7th November 2014 and in Wiltshire 10th – 14th November 2014.

 

If you are a primary school teacher and would like to know more about this scheme please contact Ros Senior ros@crew.uk.net or 0845 260 4414.
