Burnham Branch

Youth groups and schools in Burnham will now have the chance to learn more about the history soldiers from their village who served in the First World War, whose contribution is recorded on the local war memorial, thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £3,200.     

Awarded through HLF’s “First World War: then and now’ grant scheme, part of the Government’s Centenary Programme, the project – Burnham War Stories - led by the Royal British Legion, Burnham Branch, will work with seven local schools and youth organisations to create a series of engaging digital exhibitions and educational resources that will help explore these important war stories with the wider community.

Jackie Slater is the contact for the Branch.
