Do you want to help with our project?
Our Project started in 1988 and covers the whole of Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne and County Durham - Tweed to Tees.

The past few years has produced a lot of research into the two great wars and also into the names of those who fell and/or served.

We now feel that the time has come to pull all information together in a way that recognises the work done by people over the past few years as well as our own over 31 years.

New memorials have been created, and older ones have been restored. Some have even been rediscovered! We need the public to keep us informed of these, and we appreciate photos and copies of unveiling service programmes. Everything is acknowledged to the sender.

We also need funds, as our website is creaking at the seams and needs to be updated. Our group members all work voluntarily.

We have booked the village hall at Stannington, on the A1 just south of Morpeth, for Saturday June 8th from 10 a.m. 4.00 p.m. The day will include our A.G.M. which will be kept as short as possible.

We hope that people will come to tell us what they have done and discuss how we can progress.

We are also seeking help from people as the workload piles even higher. We can explain what we need.

Please tell us if you are prepared to come, give a short talk, or have a small display, or learn about ways in which you can help.

If you cannot come, please tell us about your own work and we will see how we can bring it all together into one tribute to all who suffered through war in the north-east of England, whether they served, fell, or were left to pick up the pieces.
