War Memorials Workshop Newcastle 23rd November

Posted on Oct 06 2016

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.  Did you know that it is estimated that 10,000 war memorials are at risk?  Did you know that there is no complete database of all the country’s war memorials and their current condition?  We want to change this and we need your help!

Civic Voice and the North East War Memorials Project (NEWMP) is hosting a free workshop on November 23rd, 9.45am – 1.30pm at Bessie Surtees House, 41-44 Sandhill, Newcastle NE1 3JF.  Come and find out more about the programme and how you can help record the condition of your local war memorials. The workshop will cover:

  • 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
  • A resource pack containing all the necessary information to get you started.

If you are interested in coming to the workshop you can reserve your free place by visiting
