Civic Centre to host Wiltshire Wall of Remembrance
The Wiltshire Wall of Remembrance was created as part of a project for schools which took place across the county in 2014, with thousands of children making 10,000 commemorative crosses to recognise the individuals from within their own communities who gave their lives during the First World War. Pupils meticulously researched soldiers’ backgrounds and placed a name on their cross of a soldier who lost their life.
The wall has been touring the county since August 2014 and Warminster’s Civic Centre will host the West Wiltshire section; seven panels featuring the fallen from Warminster, Westbury, Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon and Melksham. It is a poignant reminder of the scale of loss locally.
The exhibition will be on display from Monday 8th–Friday 12th August, 9am until 4.30pm, and on Saturday 13th August 10am until 2pm. Admission is free.
