Twerton remembers…

Sarah meets with local historians Bryan Chalker & Mike Chapman to finalise plans for the event.

Local resident and campaigner Sarah Moore has joined forces with Bath City Football Club to arrange a small exhibition to be held on 10th November 2018 at the football ground in Twerton, to commemorate the end of WW1.

The event is to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War together with an exhibition of Twerton – 100 years ago.

Sarah meets with local historians Bryan Chalker & Mike Chapman to finalise plans for the event.

There will be a display of artefacts, photographs and documents from other local residents as well as a talk and presentations from local historians.

The Museum of Bath at Work has also got involved with the event and will be coming along to show what life was like 100 years ago.

Sally Harris, Bath City’s Community Director said “Bath City is excited to be hosting this exhibition on Twerton and the First World War and sees it as an opportunity to reconnect local people with the shared history of our community. Twerton and its residents had an interesting role to play through WW1, and the historical pieces we have gathered offer a brilliant lens through which to explore that role, and to look at the ways that Twerton has developed in the last 100 years”.9CCB673FFF3C42679DC758373D5C2B04

The team have managed to secure 3 silhouettes from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, that will be put up to remember those that lost their lives as well as a garland of 147 poppies that Sarah has knitted to be hung on the memorial in Twerton on Sunday 11th November, there is one poppy for every person named on the memorial.

Full details of the exhibition will be released closer to the date but everyone is invited to come along and have a look and hopefully make a small donation to charity whilst they are there.
