Photograph of the Week

The Heritage Centre stages World War One exhibition

PHOTOGRAPHED ON THURSDAY 24th JULY 2014

Many aspects highlighting the history of Bourne are covered in the varied static displays open to the public at the town’s Heritage Centre housed in a converted water mill in South Street and run by the Civic Society since 1981. Members also stage periodic exhibitions to coincide with national events and anniversaries and the latest which opens this weekend is devoted to World War One to coincide with the centenary of Britain's declaration on 4th August 1914. A collection of artefacts, documents and photographs relating to this town during the four years of conflict that followed have been assembled for public display over the next five weeks when it will be open for inspection every afternoon and those who have seen a preview attest that it is well worth a visit.
