Overbury Remembers Sat 16th - Sun 17th August 2014


Overbury Remembers 2014 – Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th August 2014
"Overbury Remembers" 11am - 5pm 

What can we find out about the families of every man who is remembered on the War Memorial Lynch Gate, Church Roll of Honour & School Board?

In the run up to the 100 year anniversary of the commencement of WW1 we would love to find out more about the people of Overbury and Conderton. What was the village like as war broke out. Who were the families living there, what did they do and where and how did they live? We have started to find out & are contacting families of those who were there to share with us their stories & photographs. Some fascinating work is being done.

In 2004 we enjoyed a Roots & Fruits Festival encouraging those with connections to the village to return, see our exhibits & share their family research. We will be building on this which will be centred around the Village Hall & St Faiths.  There will be free parking & free entrance.
