First World War: then and now
“The First World War affected millions across the globe and shaped the world we live in. The Centenary is a chance to understand the war better, uncover its stories and explore what it means to us today. Everyone should have the chance to discover more about the war and mark the Centenary. That’s why we are providing this special grant programme for community projects.” Heritage Lottery Fund
‘Ombersley Remembers’ is an initiative by Ombersley Memorial Hall to mark the Centenary of the First World War, funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund under the “First Word War: then and now” grant programme.
