RYBURGH "THINK AND THANK" HERITAGE LOTTERY AWARD
We are delighted to have been awarded a £9,000 Heritage Lottery grant to help us participate more fully in the nation's WW1 commemorations and to conserve our colourful "Think and Thank" memorial screen. Since the grant was awarded in June 2104 we have been finding out what we can about the soldiers whose names are inscribed on it and researching local life during the war years. There have been plenty of opportunities for people to take part: workshops to investigate WW1 food, events to recreate the silk embroidered cards that were sent back from the Western Front as well as activities to record information about the past.
Click on the images below for further information:
- account of our WW1 events and activities

“THE THINK AND THANK PROJECT”: WHERE NEXT?
The project came to an end in June 2016 but the commemorative peals and research continue.
Contact us if you would like to contribute memories that have been passed down or if you would like to take part in any of the activities.
