The Group were successful in an application to HLF’s ‘Then & Now‘ fund to create a digital Roll of Honour display of local men who fought in the First World War.  The hi-tech touch screen (from InfoAktiv) containing hundreds of records and images, is now on display at The Heritage Hub, as well as a life-size replica of a First World War trench, created by students at the University for the Creative Arts.
