WWI exhibition back in Aylesbury

18 May 2015

Aylesbury residents have another chance to explore what local schools have done to commemorate the centenary of the First World War (WWI).

The WWI schools exhibition will be displayed at the Royal British Legion (RBL), located on the High Street, Aylesbury, during the half term week - from Monday 25 to Friday 29 May.

Mark Collins, RBL South East Midlands Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to host the exhibition, our doors are always open for anyone to come in and find out about community activities and the services we provide to the Armed Forces communities across the area.”

Adam Cheyo, AVDC Community Engagement Officer, said: “This will be the last exhibition display open to the general public. A number of school displays are on-going with the next exhibition venues at the Halton Community Combined, Akeley Wood and The Grange Schools in June and July.”

About the exhibition:
In 2014, AVDC secured funding from the Community Covenant Fund to cover the cost of a WWI centenary project in Aylesbury Vale.

Young people from six schools: Buckingham Primary, Royal Latin, Cottesloe, Halton Community Combine, Akeley Wood and the Grange schools teamed up with social enterprise organisations Maybe Magazine and Community Impact Bucks to produce a film and a magazine.

The project was based on school events and activities to commemorate the WW1 centenary.

The magazine Aylesbury Vale Remembers is now available in hard copy and online. You can also watch the film on YouTube.
