Our idea:

111024 - WG_Funded_land_mono jpg - LogoPupils will research the stories of the 700+ men & 1 woman (Lizzie Thomas), from the Neath area, who took part in the First World War. They will document their lives and create a database of information digitising relevant and appropriate items.

They will create a display and invite the local Primary School to visit and view the work. They will use the Imperial War Museum to access resources.

By gathering information on the people involved, they hope to make stronger community links.
