What is your community going to do to commemorate the 2018 Armistice anniversary? 


If you are considering a project to commemorate the Armistice, now is the time to start preparing. Do you have something in mind that will reflect and engage your community? Do you know what funding is on offer to help you?


Join us at Chesterfield Library on 16 October to hear from groups who have run successful projects, get advice from the Heritage Lottery Fund and learn from First World War historians about different perspectives of the war.


The event is free and there will be refreshments and buffet lunch.
