Long Sutton & District Civic Society’s exhibition on World War One will be a totally community effort.
It will rely entirely on the contributions of people who live in the district – of stories, photographs and other memorabilia relating to family members who served in the war.
Society vice-chairman Tony Button is also working with Westmere Primary School at Sutton Bridge on a whole-school project to check if any of the 48 names on the village memorial appear in the original school records.
Residents’ Histories of World War One will include a display by historian and author Alastair Goodrum on the history of Captain Dawes, whose parents lived in Long Sutton, and information from Stuart Talton, a member of the RAF Reserve, who has previously researched the 95 names on the war memorial in Long Sutton.
If anyone is unable to attend the information events on April 5 (Sutton Bridge) and April 19 (Long Sutton) but has information about someone on a local war memorial or stories or other memorabilia they want to share, contact Wendy Jeffries on 01406 362310 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
