Bottesford Parish 1st World War Centenary
People, community and memory
The Bottesford Heritage Group is helping to organise events to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, 1914-1918. We welcome more volunteers to join in the planning and organisation of centenary activities. Proposals so far include: tracing and contacting of relatives of those named on the memorials and those who served from the Parish with a view to recording any family memorabilia concerning their war time service and lives; the preparation of a commemorative volume that focuses on the contributions made by families to the war effort from Bottesford, Easthorpe, Normanton and Muston; the organisation of Centenary exhibitions sometime during the period 2104 to 2016; the preparation of articles for the Bottesford History website and the Bottesford Heritage notice board. Please do get in touch if you or any organisation you represent would be willing to be involved.
Meetings to develop the details of these and other suggested activities will be organised in the near future. Please look out for further details on the Heritage Notice Board outside the Co-op on Queen Street or check this website http://www.bottesfordhistory.org.uk
