Havering Museum is pleased to have been working with the Havering Library Local Studies and Family History Center for this joint project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund over two years to commemorate the First World War and the impact it had on the local area, which is now known as Havering. Over these two years there will be many activitites and exhibitions starting with Havering Museums latest exhibition which opens on 9th August and runs until 15th November 2014 entitled Home Front Havering
We have many events planned for all ages to enjoy and take part in over these two years. You are also able to follow the story of wartime Havering online by following the monthly update on the Havering Libraries website.
We have educational sessions planned for local schools and groups and also our Reminiscence group which meets weekly will have some sessions planned to share family stories about WW1.
Also next year we have an exciting exhibition planned which will run from 12th September to 24th October 2015 entitled RFC Sutton Farm Exhibition which tells the story of how a quiet country farm became a military airfield which saw action in both WW1 and WW2.
So be sure to plan a visit to Havering Museum soon to see our latest exhibition and find out how WW1 impacted on our local area.
