Forget Me Not Workshop and Talk
Cheriton / November 2018
With funding from Heritage Lottery Fund Strange Cargo carried out research online, at the Imperial War Museum, at local exhibitions and museums and with support from local historians, which enabled us to develop a programme that provided an activity led workshop project aimed at helping participants understand more about life in Cheriton during the First World War. The activities, which include a talk by Cheriton historian Vince Williams, which you can read more about below, were part of a wider project called Forget Me Not. that was in remembrance of the sacrifice of local servicemen and women and their families during the Great War.
Primary school and public workshops were held with Year 6 class groups across all the Cheriton Primary Schools. The project was also offered as a free public family workshop at Strange Cargo. The workshops were extremely successful
