Broxbourne - We Will Remember Them
Broxbourne Borough Council
Lowewood Museum has received £16,140 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for Broxbourne: We Will Remember Them, a project to record, share and commemorate the lives of First World War soldiers from Broxbourne. Volunteers will be recruited to research stories of those who fought, using the Borough’s war memorials, archives and personal collections. Local sewing groups will come together to create commemorative embroidered postcards, and a number of community sharing days will take place at the Museum for people to share their own stories of ancestors and friends who fought in the First World War. Through online information, digital records and a touring exhibition, the project will bring local people together to preserve the stories of those who served in the First World War, ensuring their legacy lives on.
