First World War centenary

Next year sees the hundedth anniversary of the start of "The Great War"

The Heritage Lottery Fund has grants available for projects to remember that war.

I will be mentioning this at the next meeting of the Blyth Town Council events committee, but in the meantime suggest:-

Work on the various war memorials in /Blyth

A project to remember the people of Blyth who died in the war , with perhaps an internet site dedicated to Blyth in World War 1

A project to remind people of the home front , fighting the war in the home, in mines etc ....

Any ideas?

Details of the fund are at:-
