On the agenda in 2019
We’re delighted to have a National Lottery Heritage grant to finish off all the work we’ve been doing in Cornwall over the past four years. Camborne Town Council is backing our plan to re-stage the exhibition in the town to mark Remembrance Day this year. We’ll be publishing a booklet with all the history that we’ve uncovered and launching it that weekend.
This year is a century after many local men returned from Prisoner of War camps. We’ll be trying to find out more about their experiences. We’ll also forge links between Cornish schools and their counterparts in Estaires, northern France, where many of the men were stationed.
Work with migrant workers in Cornwall continues. We’re hoping to start workshops in schools in spring 2020.
Alongside all this… we’re planning to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two. We’re planning to stage a month of events and workshops at Heartlands, Pool, Cornwall, in May 2020.
