Ombersley Remembers

the World War 1 Home Front

A look at life in Ombersley during the war years

Join our events

The project coordinators are Lesley Welch and Marie Jones. The full programme of events and activities is being developed as the project progresses and these will be publicised locally on websites, in the parish magazine and leaflets.

A final event will be held at the Memorial Hall bringing all the things we find out about the village together for all to see. The School children will be performing; there will be an exhibition; re-enactors; music, and themed entertainment.

We are hoping to have a House Trail during the celebration weekend where those of us who have researched our homes can invite people to come and listen to our story.
