Commemoration of World War 1

Coffee mornings on the fourth Friday of every month provide an opportunity for individual groups to share what they are doing with all of our members.

At the coffee morning on 22nd of August a number of different groups came together to commemorate a hundred years of the start of World War 1. It was truly a special occasion.

Members of the Genealogy Group displayed photographs, letters and memorabilia dating back to the period and personal to their family history.

Members of our Art Group have used the period as inspiration for their paintings. Their impressive work was on display.

There was also a display of stories and poems by our Creative Writing and Poetry Groups.

Our Ukulele Group (Kingswinford and District Strummers) put on a performance of World War One songs.

This occasion provided us with an opportunity to show off the many and diverse talents that we have in our organisation whilst remembering the sacrifices made by so many.

You can view some of the work and tributes by selecting the Links on the top right of this page all with WWI prefix.

Many thanks go to all members for their contribution.

Thanks to Alan Westley for sharing his passion of military uniforms with us all.

And of course thanks to John Bradbury for co-ordinating the whole effort.
