27 Oct

This year, for the week each side of Remembrance Sunday, we will be honouring those who have served with a fortnight that includes special displays of medals and war poetry.

The event will run from Saturday 5 November until Saturday 19 November, and during the course of the period, anybody bring their own or a family member’s medals will be allowed free entry to the Heritage Centre (maximum two adults and two children). We will also hold two special Medal Identification Days, where our knowledgeable volunteers will attempt to help identify any british military medals brought in by visitors, on Wednesday 9 November and Wednesday 16 November.

We will also display a number excerpts, verses and complete war poems around the Heritage Centre, and these will also be posted via social media throughout the two-week period.
