Free War Memorials Workshop, 1 March 2017, Oxford

It is over two years since the Prime Minister announced a national programme to survey and restore many of the country’s First World War memorials and about 18 months since the First World War Memorials Programme began.

Since then, dozens of workshops have been held across the country to inspire action and encourage communities to save their local war memorial. An estimated 10,000 war memorials are at risk and there is no complete database of all the country’s war memorials and their current condition. Civic Voice wants to change this.

Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement, would like to invite you to a FREE workshop being held at the OXFORD QUAKER MEETING HOUSE, 9.45AM – 1.00PM ON WEDNESDAY MARCH 1ST. Come and find out more about the programme and how you can identify and record the condition of your local war memorials. From the workshop you will gain:

Background information about the programme
Training to undertake a simple condition survey
Training on how to record survey results on the War Memorials Online website
Information about funding for war memorial repairs and conservation
A resource pack containing all the necessary information to get you started.
