A message from the Wiltshire’s Great War Centenary group:
If you missed the Commemorating Wiltshire’s Great War event last week then we have some information to share. It was great to see over 140 people there and to see so much enthusiasm for marking the centenary.
The link below will take you to a PDF of one of the presentations given during the evening by Josie Gale from IWM.
The event was organised by a steering group of organisations, charities and community groups, supported by Wiltshire Council.
We will be building on this successful event to create a network of people who will be involved over the next few years. During the evening we shared information that an application has been submitted for funding to help support and develop the network. We hope to hear soon whether this bid has been successful, and a project coordinator can be appointed. Their role would be to help you develop your ideas, to build partnerships and to advise on support and funding available.
BBC Wiltshire is planning its World War One coverage and their producer, Ashley Heath, attended the recent meeting at Devizes School. If he didn’t manage to speak to you on the night, he’d be delighted to hear from you.

To help us plan the next steps, we would be grateful if you could spend a moment completing a simple survey.
Thank you for your interest and we will keep you in touch
The Steering Group
