Centenary of WW1
Do you live in the Great Aycliffe area? Do you have relatives who served in WW1 in any capacity anywhere? If so, we would love to hear from you. We intend to commemorate the start of WW1 in September 2014 and wish to display photographs, memorabilia and information of people involved in the war.
We are always looking for historical memorabilia, especially material to copy and to put onto the website.
