Whitwell Parish Council has received £8,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a project “Whitwell & Hodthorpe World War One Commemoration”.

Made possible by National Lottery players through HLF’s First World War then and now programme, the project will focus on remembrance and heritage with a calendar of events taking place from June to August 2018.

To mark the Centenary of the end of World War One, the project will enable local people in the parishes of Whitwell and Hodthorpe & Belph to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of the people who lived through the First World War. Some of the events taking place throughout the commemoration period include a “dugout” supper, a performance of local stories, a service to remember local heroes and a service of peace and thanksgiving. In addition the money will enable the war memorial in the centre of the community to be cleaned and restored.

Volunteers will collect photographs, newspaper clippings and other documents, as well as family tales passed down to help them build a clear picture of what life was really like and these will be available for everyone to view. Some of the artefacts will also be included in a time capsule to be installed in the Community Centre memorial garden.

Lasting tributes, produced by local volunteers, include updating and renewing the rolls of honour, the production of a reprint of a collection of poems by local Great War poet John William Streets and the preparation of historical and commemorative banners.

Commenting on the award, Councillor Tom Munro, Chair of the co-ordinating committee said: “We are thrilled to have received the support of the National Lottery and look forward to providing residents of both parishes with a lasting legacy that recognises the sacrifices of those who gave both their lives and their service for our country.”
