Thornham History Society has been in touch with us to let us know about an exhibition they are staging this half term in Thornham Village Hall.

The exhibition will be laid out as a timeline around our large village hall.  It will start with the village before the war (looking at employment and life styles) and move on to enlistment, life in the trenches, life on the Home Front, the Armistice and lastly what we have called “the aftermath”, concentrating on the village’s Red Cross Auxiliary Hospital and on details of the Thornham men who failed to return from the war.

Entry is free and there will be refreshments.

The hall is fully disabled access friendly and there is on site parking freely available adjacent to the hall.

For more details please contact Thornham History Society but do drop in if you are in the area it sounds fascinating.
