Alan Clegg has been researching the soldiers recorded on the War Memorial outside Waberthwaite School. He has uncovered some fascinating, and sometimes heart-breaking stories about them. He would love to find photos of them to bring their history to life. If you can find a photo of someone remembered there, please contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01229717661
The History group have started to collect together their recent findings into a folder to be kept in church. Do have a look through if you are visiting - it's usually kept in what was known in 1807 as "the singing pew" at the back of the church. Eventually this information will be used to help us tell the story of the site to visitors.
