Event description

Description

As we reflect on the events of the First World War that saw so many people make the ultimate sacrifice, we believe it is vital that we ensure our memorials are fitting tributes to the fallen.

Our project, as part of the national commemorative events, will help conserve and protect the nation's war memorials for the long term as well as ensuring there are skilled volunteers available to assess there condition and take steps to preserve them in the proper way.

We want to use this meeting to recognise that it is the final year of the First World War Memorials programme. We want to show that the First World War centenary is engaging with new audiences. We also need to consider, once the First World War commemorations are finished, how we ensure people to stay involved in the historic environment sector.

We want to stimulate a debate about how the country is commemorating the First World War; and what the legacy from the commemorations will be,and how that influences the issues facing the historic environment in the future and the role communities can play in that. Discussions will centre on how we can recruit a new frontline of volunteers to conserve the nation’s historic environment, 100 years on.
