Storrington Remembers: Great War legacy exhibition

Storrington Remembers poster

The Local History Group (http://www.storringtonlhg.org.uk) were responsible for the Roll of Honour coming back to the village in 2014. Each year we’ve provided a themed exhibition at the Old School of our research of the men and woman (Edith Ingram) on the Roll of Honour and the War Memorial. Last year the Royal British Legion Roll of Honour was discovered in the social club and is now on display along with the original panels in the museum.

This will be our last exhibition on the Great War and is labeled the “legacy” which will cover those who returned, social and business activity in Storrington, the commonwealth war grave commission and a chance to explore your family who may have served in the Great War. All exhibitions have been awarded Heritage Lottery funding.

We will also be showcasing new projects that will carry the History Group forward with information on the Thakeham Workhouse, street names, local pubs and the Storrington Trails. We hope this will encourage new members to get involved and explore their interests with local history.
