Events planned across Bromley to commemorate centenary of World War One: Volunteers required

VOLUNTEERS are being sought to support a programme of events across Bromley borough commemorating the centenary of World War One.

The events planned will take place throughout 2014, 2015 and 2016 and will include touring exhibitions, a heritage day at Bromley Museum, free talks and family history sessions and the unveiling of interpretation panels at key sites. 

A volunteer information day is being held on Saturday (January 25) from 10am to 12 noon in the Large Hall, Bromley Central Library, to outline  project and volunteering opportunities available.

Volunteer roles include historical research assistants, website editors and content creators, photographers, event planners and more.

Simon McKeon, Local Studies and Archives Manager at Bromley Central Library, said: "We are keen to acknowledge Bromley's contribution to the First World War effort, recognising the care provided to wartime casualties with more than 50 hospitals across the borough. 

"We are looking for volunteers across a wide range of roles so why not come along to our information day or get in touch with us directly for more information."

For more information call 020 8461 7170 or email localstudies.library@bromley.gov.uk.

No.

I am not going to write about rewriting history by applying todays borough boundaries to the past. Nor am I going to write about closing local hospitals. There is a far more important issue here.

It is the end of the Great War that should be commemorated, not the beginning. If this a government initiative (and I have read some articles in the national media to that effect) then I am going to give the ConDems the benefit of the doubt & assume that they are guilty of no more than extreme bad taste.

This is very very wrong.
