Grants to commemorate WW1

Posted on 10th October 2013 | in Community , Heritage & Tourism

World War I had a huge impact on every single village and town in the country. We believe that stories of courage, fortitude and comradeship of men and women from Warkworth and Amble areas during the war need to be shared with the community.

If you have a story or photographs of family members who served in World War I, we would like to hear from you. In commemoration of the centenary, many organisations are compiling in-depth databases of those who served, or are raising funds for particular projects.

If you would like to organise a project to commemorate the anniversary, the Heritage Lottery Fund has launched “First World War: then and now”, a £6million small grants programme to help communities mark the Centenary of the First World War. Visit and click “How to apply”.
