Joining Forces, Armed Forces Day
- Astley St
Bolton BL1 8EY
The project will be based around the history of the First World War; the common front that once united us all will be retold to educate the local community of their past involvement, in the hope of breaking down social barriers. The local schools, cadets, veterans and community will all be invited. The schools will be given a small donation to create a themed project which will later be judged and the winning school will have said piece of work displayed within the community centre (All Souls) until next Armed Forces Day. The intent is for all parties to meet at the nearest school whereupon we shall all march to the community centre. There we have a local historian who will be giving presentations throughout the day on the First World War. Concurrently, we will be running themed events throughout this location to commemorate and educate, to unite the local communities through our Armed Forces Day.
