HIGH HOPES TO CONTINUE

Whilst the initial 3 year project of Preston Remembers has come to a financial end, the team has put together a further bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop the excellent work done up to 2016, with funding hopefully in place by 2017. Check back for more updates regularly.

 

 

WW1 CENTENARY IN PRESTON

Preston Remembers is a partnership project that is joining together the activities, exhibitions and events that are happening from 2014 – 2018 in Preston to mark the centenary of the First World War.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this project started with the restoration of Preston’s Cenotaph in 2013. This website will help you find out how you can get involved, what there is to visit and give guidance for those undertaking Preston family history.

As a barracks town, Preston has a unique relationship to the First World War. Through this project we hope to uncover the stories and lives of both those that served and those that lived in Preston throughout this period.
